In a few days one of the best festivals in the world will begin: San Fermin (or Sanfermines). This amazing Spanish festival is celebrated in Pamplona (Navarre). The people living in Pamplona are already getting nervous. They are probably busy preparing the typical white trousers, the red handkerchief and organizing different gastronomic events with their friends. Some people coming from abroad don’t worry too much about preparations. They will just add a red handkerchief to their normal outfit and they will eat a sandwich somewhere. However, there is still a good number of people looking for good restaurants to enjoy the festival in a gastronomic way too.
Brazilian gastronomy provides a wealth of diversity of food, but there is something that comes to our minds when we think about Brazil and its food: the meat. Especially in some areas of the country, barbecues are really common and people use to make one at least weekly.read more
The traditional “tapeo” in Pamplona is a form of culture to enjoy in a good company while you taste the “pinchos” (“pintxos” in the local language; “tapas” as they are well known worldwide) that different bars are used to offer. These tapas have been prepared with special care by the different chefs in each establishment.read more
If we join tradition and gastronomy, one of the things we can think of are, without any doubt, the cider houses. Thinking about these places and the cod omelet or cutlet we will taste makes our mouth water. Although there are cider houses in different places, in this article we will focus on the Basque ones. We can say that the birthplace of the cider in the Basque Country is located in Astigarraga, just 5 km from San Sebastian.read more
Leon, located in Castile and Leon (Spain), is one of those cities that you have to visit if you love to eat and enjoy every bite. Leon must be included in the list of the best places to go for tapas too, because with ten euros you can visit six or seven bars, taking a short beer (zurito, penalti ...) and tasting a tapa in each bar (in some bars even choosing it!). Basically, if you are passing through or on vacation, it is cheaper to go for tapas than to buy at the supermarket ;)read more
It is almost time for the awaited Celedon's descent and the opening of “La Blanca”, the traditional festival in Vitoria / Gasteiz (Basque Country). The chupinazo, which is the rocket to open the fiesta, will be launched on the 4th of August at 18h. Then the festival will go on until the 10th of August at 1 a.m., when Celedon goes back to the San Miguel’s bell tower with his umbrella and surrounded by fireworks.read more
There are some countries that you visit where the gastronomy plays a key role in your travel, even if there are other interesting things too. This is what happens with Greece. You can freak out with Athens, fall in love with Santorini or connect in a especial way with a hidden spot in Naxos, but the thing that you will always remember from Greece will be its gastronomy.read more
