Faculty of Gastronomic Sciences
The Basque Culinary Center, or the Faculty of Gastronomic Sciences, opened its classrooms in San Sebastián’s Miramón Technology Park in 2011. The new centre, which teaches university degrees in the culinary arts with the focus on generating high standards of knowledge and training qualified professionals, is the second gastronomic university in all Europe. San Sebastián therefore enjoys even greater recognition in the world of good eating. The Basque Culinary Center is also dedicated to research and knowledge transfer among haute-cuisine professionals and the business sectors related directly or indirectly to gastronomy, always with an eye on the international scene.
The Basque Culinary Center meets the needs of a world (that of cooking) which has experienced tremendous evolution, where professionals no longer stop at making food to eat, but seek to create emotions in all senses. The Basque Culinary Center also organises courses for cookery enthusiasts in Spanish and Basque for the locals, and in English for foreign visitors.
