About Marianito

Marianito is a project started by Cameron Gordon and Ibai Pico, two people with different origins who share the same love for a place where good food and drink is a way of life: The Basque Country. 

The two met in 2021 when Cameron moved from Southern California to Bilbao. With a background in wine and food, she met willingly with anything Ibai, a proud local, had to show her. He introduced her to Txakoli and pinchos, gildas and vermouth, the Basque language, their ancient traditions, and a completely different culture that at the same time, felt like a second home to her.

In 2023, the couple decided to put forth their shared experiences surrounding food, cooking, and drink to create Marianito. Their mission is to highlight local products that embody the gastronomic flair and culture of the Basque Country, and share them with the world—with hopes to reach farther than just California.
