Post-Summit Days 2018
Our 3-day Post-Summit programme is divided into 2 parts. You can either join us for both parts or just one.
PART 1 | Friday April 13
Kobe Cattle Ranch Visit & Lunch at Asador Trinkete Borda (Day Trip)
Meeting Point: Hotel Maria Cristina Lobby
Return to San Sebastian: 19:00
Price: € 270
Join us for a special culinary experience at Trinkete Borda Kobe Cattle Ranch & Restaurant. Our friend and award winning griller, Inaki Aramburu, has developed the sole herd of Kobe Beef cattle in Europe over a 10-year period, 100% certified in Kobe, Japan. We’ve reserved the highest quality aged B12 rated Kobe beef for our guests.
Kobe beef comes from the Tajima strain of Japanese Black Wagyu. Wagyu literally means 'Japanese cattle'. Kobe is the most desired as it is genetically predisposed to intense marbling and valued for its flavour & tenderness.
The day will begin with a visit to nearby Hondarribia, one of the Basque Country's most charming towns on the French border. Later, Inaki will give us a personal tour of his Kobe Cattle Ranch & kitchen, followed by a Basque all-day lunch experience.
