Basque gastronomy


Balance and diversity

The Basque Country features a balance as it is capable of offering all kinds of raw-materials all along its geography. The individual towns and villages that are specialized in the elaboration of certain produce make a rather complete whole. In the Basque Country, variety is at the doorstep.

Off the land

The varied climatology allows for different produce to be harvested in different places.

From the Cantabrian sea

Many highly-regarded species of fish can be found a few miles into the sea from the Basque coast.

From the farmhouses

Basque meat is characterized not only for its taste, but also for the fact that it comes from local breeds.

And for drink...

And, of course, the raw material of our star drinks: the different grapes, apples and a hops on the way to recovery.
