Every year in October, the Kursaal conference center in San Sebastian, Spain, fills up with thousands and thousands of chefs, foodies, gastronomy journalists, culinary hopefuls, students and vendors. They all gather for one of the worlds’ most important hospitality industry conferences: San Sebastián Gastronomika.
Dominated by the culinary rock stars and legends of Spain, each year there are a handful of international Chefs that are lucky enough to stand alongside them. Each of their 30-minute presentations must capture the soul of the 1,500 people who sit eagerly listening for life-changing ideas, techniques, ingredients and the dishes that will set the trends for the year and spark the direction for the future. With a fixed panel of 3 Michelin-starred Spanish chefs/superheroes such as Juan Mari Arzak, Dani García, Joan Roca, Martín Beresategui and Eneko Atxa, other speakers are selected by invitation only and we in Cuca are shocked, honored and pee-yourself excited to have received the invitation for this year’s 2019 edition of San Sebastian Gastronomika. Stay tuned to find out more!
Date: 6 to 9 October 2019
Venue: Kursaal Conference Centre, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain.
