Spain – Basque men-only cooking clubs

Dec 26, 2023 | Culture, People, Videos

In Spain’s Basque Country, traditional men-only dinner societies known as txokos are thriving. These exclusive clubs bring together men to cook, drink, and socialize, without the intrusion of women. But what keeps them going in the age of gender equality? A new documentary, Third Person, takes us on a journey through the history, culture, and evolution of these txokos.
From the origins of txokos to their present-day popularity, Third Person explores what it means to be male in Basque society today. The documentary delves into the rituals and traditions of these societies and questions whether they are still relevant in the 21st century. With exclusive access to the inner workings of these clubs, Third Person is an eye-opening glimpse into a unique world that is as fascinating as it is controversial.
