There are few better occasions to spark off the best “street food” in the world than the year celebrating the 500th anniversary of the first circumnavigation of the planet by Magellan and Elkano.

The porch of the Kursaal Conference Centre (from 6 to 9) will offer the whole of San Sebastian a selection of famous street recipes from Asia and South America, both transcendental points in that legendary route that launched the first form of “globalisation”. Dishes such as Filipino chicken, chicken and coconut noodles and other Latin American specialities will make the world go round at the very door of Congress.
