Spain - Basque Country · September 28 - October 6, 2019 · Sold out - Waiting list

This program is currently sold out – please email if you would like to be added to the waiting list.


The Basque Country sits in the green north of Spain on the Atlantic coast, straddling over into France. Known locally as Euskadi or País Vasco, they have their own language, their own culinary traditions (recognized my Michelin granting stars to over 30 restaurants), and incredibly beautiful geography. For these reasons alone we should visit, but once you learn of their passion for combining the convivial act of dining with the best quality ingredients, well, there’s no turning back.
