The Basque Market offers a variety of cooking classes with wine tastings each month. We can also customize a private class for you and your friends or colleagues! We taste a wonderful lineup of wines from the Iberian Peninsula. You’ll not only learn some great recipes, but also a fair amount about the wines of this region.

Classes are pre-paid and non-refundable. Please give us a call at 208-433-1208 or stop into the market to register and pay.

The evening begins at 5:30 pm for a tasting of carefully selected wines. Cooking instructions will begin at about 6:00 pm and typically run 1-2 hours. Light tapas are also provided at the beginning of class.

Classes start at $45/person, paid in advance and are non-refundable. If for some reason you can’t make it, feel free to send a friend in your place.
