What our clients say about us
Mimo was exactly what we were looking for! I was in San Sebastián with my dad and my little brother and we wanted to take a cooking class together and this was amazing. The chefs were funny, patient, educational, and very skilled. It was wonderful to watch their techniques. The food was SO GOOD!! Highly recommend to anyone visiting San Sebastián.

We are not fluent in English, but the chef made sure we understood. The chef is hilarious and fun and we really enjoyed it. I remember that my mother, who participated with me, had a very nice smile. Thank you for the best experience.
This is more than a cooking class it is opportunity to hear, see and feel the passion of the Basque Country and its food culture. The chef’s leading the experience have enthusiasm and energy that penetrates the group and brings this experience to life. I learnt so much not just about Basque cooking but cooking basics, I will never make salad, slice onions or cook steak the same again. Would do it again in a heart beat. Worth evert cent.

We met our guide, Edurne who was wonderful. We learned the history of San Sebastian and tasted pintxos at 5 bars, ending with Burnt Basque Cheesecake. I am a tour guide and this tour is always on my list of favorites for my clients. I would highly recommend it.
