Spanish & Cooking

Students studying a Spanish Course at EIDE have the opportunity to attend a cooking course at EIDE Cooking School, where professional cooks have received their training since 1989. Students will learn to prepare the most typical dishes, tapas and pintxos (Basque tapas) of the both worldwide famous Spanish and Basque Cuisine.

The course takes place at the professional kitchen at EIDE  and it is held by our own cooking teachers, who have 10 to 20 years experience both as cooks and cooking teachers. The philosophy of our cooking courses is the same as that of all our courses: professional teaching and personal attention.
