The tapas bars in the UK are permanently packed and if you serve beer to your guests unaccompanied by some patatas bravas or some crusty bread and jamon Serrano then you can’t call yourself a good host. In fact, tapas is so hot at the moment that even the website for El Txoko del Gourmet sizzles when your browser opens it, so what better place to go and learn the secrets of mouth-watering tapas?

The school is based in the town of San Sebastian on the northern coast of Spain and is kitted out to teach all ages to cook moreish dishes such as crepes stuffed with cuttlefish, sautéed cuttlefish with crushed tomatoes and onions and tempura prawns and seafood tapas with tapenade. Although there are notes in English, the courses will be in Spanish and so basic vocabulary would be a help. Also, the course is much more a crash course in Basque cooking than a leisurely cooking holiday, so think more about sweltering in the heat of a steaming kitchen, than basking in the heat of the afternoon sun.
