San Sebastián: surf, supper and sights
"Pintxo" look like kabobs - bite-sized snacks on wooden skewers. An uncomplicated manner to enjoy cleverly prepared prawns, squid, fried peppers or bits of meat. The "sociedad gastronómica", exclusively male local cooking clubs dating back to the 19th century, are part of culinary history here. There are thought to be some 200 of these. How many of the 12,000 men actually cook at home is unknown.
