This will be the fifth edition of this annual conference, which year after year welcomes some of the most talented chefs and pintxo champions from around the globe to this unique culinary event.

This year’s congress will in many ways highlight the global presence of tapas with chefs like famed, UK-based chef José Pizarro, who will undoubtedly share his views on the international transcendence of this Spanish gastronomic tradition. He will be joined by chefs Rodrigo Llanes, Javier Rodríguez, Mercedes Solís and Samanta Leskes of guest country Argentina, in addition to San Sebastián-based Argentinean chef Paulo Auriado, who just received a Michelin star. The congress will also welcome the pintxo champion of Basque Country and Navarre, Igor Rodríguez, as well as world pintxo champion Øyvind Bøe Dalelv, of Norway.
