Starry Nights in San Sebastian
Basque cuisine is the finest in Spain, and it's in the pretty seaside resort of San Sebastián that the cooking reaches its zenith, says Keith. "There are more Michelin stars per capita here than anywhere else in the world - Arzak (www.arzak.info) and Kokotxa (www.restaurantekokotxa.com; pictured) share a fistful between them - but it's the tapas (pintxos in Basque) that'll linger in your mouth's memory. The town's old quarter, the Parte Vieja, is crammed with bars serving lovingly assembled morsels of minimalist art: try squid cooked in its own ink or pistachio croquettes.
