19 The Veuve Clicquot World’s Best Female Chef award celebrates the work of an exceptional female chef whose cooking excites the toughest of critics. Elena is the fourth generation of the Arzak family to head up the restaurant since it opened in 1897. In the past five years, the restaurant has consistently ranked within the top 10 of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list and was the first Basque restaurant to be awarded three Michelin stars. A highly decorated family, Elena’s father Juan Mari Arzak was honoured with the esteemed Lifetime Achievement Award at last year’s World’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony. Having learnt her craft at home, Elena expanded her horizons through extensive travel. She studied in Lucerne, Switzerland before moving through the great kitchens of Europe including Maison Troisgros, Bras and Pierre Gagnaire in France, Le Gavroche in London and El Bulli in Spain before returning to the family business. Elena has won international respect for her constantly evolving, cutting edge, research-based approach to cooking and experimentation with flavours. Through her single-minded dedication to Arzak and its signature Basque cuisine, Elena oversees not only a thriving restaurant but by working in tandem with her famous father, Juan Mari, has ensured that it is recognised as one of the most influential restaurants in the world today.

20 PINTXOS TOUR The Old Part is the best place to taste some “pintxos” (culinary art in miniature). There are traditional and innovative “pintxos” at the spectacular bars of San Sebastian. Testing cider from the “kupela” (wooden barrel) is a delightful, almost ceremonial rite that takes place in “sidrerías” (Cider Houses). Relaxed and friendly atmosphere in a rustic rural setting. People is free to get up as often as they like to visit the “kupela” for a refill of newly fermented cider pressed from locally-grown apples. CIDER HOUSES Gastronomy
