You cannot leave Donostia-San Sebastián without going out for some “pinchos”. Because in this city in the north of Spain, the “pinchos" or traditional snacks are actually miniature haute cuisine delicacies. They are exquisite to look at but even more so when you taste them. The bars in the old quarter are full of appetising snacks and people devouring them with great delight, washed down by a glass of wine or "zuritos” (beer). There is such a large variety and they are so tantalisingly presented that the ritual of walking from one end of the bar to the other, plate in hand, to choose your meal is sometimes an extremely difficult task. The local custom is to go from one bar to another, trying the specialities in each establishment.
There are also gastronomic workshops where you can learn how to prepare “pinchos” under the guidance of a chef. First, you buy the ingredients at the market, then you prepare them and finally, best of all, you taste them.
