Íñigo has two great passions in life: cooking and the sea. As a native son of San Sebastian, he feels a deep connection to his homeland and has been shaped by the city’s kitchens and currents. His first memory is fishing for crabs in La Concha bay with his grandfather, and nowadays he can be found surfing La Zurriola’s waves whenever he’s not in the kitchen. He began working at a young age, first as a swimming instructor and lifeguard and later as a chef. He has spent more than a decade behind the stove in kitchens throughout Spain and studied culinary arts at the Basque Culinary Center. Iñigo is energetic, charming, and full of life, and he has returned to his home city to share the wonders of Basque cuisine with others. He cooks with love and laughter, and he knows that cooking is all about sharing moments with friends old and new. Find him on @inigo.zebe
