20 years ago, a revolution started that has changed the world – that of Spanish gastronomy. 20 years ago, in San Sebastian, a culinary mythology was born, based on freedom and a borderless perspective that not only turned cooking upside down, but also transformed gastronomy into a global experience.

Gastronomika 2018 will mark the 20th anniversary of the gastronomic congress in San Sebastian from 8 to 10 October and offer a programme to pay tribute to the chefs and the know-how that they presented to the world, and to those who followed on after them at the forefront worldwide.

In addition, Gastronomika 2018 is extending its outlook and linking past, present and future by inviting new generations of chefs to check on the state of the current Spanish avant-garde in every community. To do this, the event will be attended by Diego Guerrero, Iván Domínguez, Juan Carlos and Jonathan Padrón, Pablo González, Víctor Martín, Maria José San Román, Mari Carmen Vélez, Arnau Bosch, Óscar García, Xanti Elías and Yolanda León.
