Jose Pizarro returns to the kitchen following his sell out hands on class based on his latest book Basque, exploring the cuisine of the Basque country. The Basque region of Northern Spain is home to the most Michelin-starred restaurants per head in the world but also has a fabulous tradition of home cooking and, of course, wonderful tapas in the region's bars. Local dishes include the traditional bacalao (salt cod with pisto and allioli) and hake a la plancha with potatoes and Romesco sauce. Join Jose to explore some of these well loved dishes and learn to create some classic tapas.
