👩🏾‍🍳 GETTING TO KNOW BASQUE GASTRONOMY 👨🏻‍🍳

 

Basque culture and gastronomy are known all over the world, especially because this last one. In fact, the cooking skills and the delicious recipes shared over the decades has enabled us to put our territory on the map, having leading chefs at the highest level.

Did you know that the Basque Country is the second region of the Iberian Peninsula with the most Michelin stars? ✨ 

Come with us to taste this delicious menu of classic Basque dishes! 📋

Basque gastronomy

 

First of all, let's begin with the representative of the popular Basque pintxos; named “gilda”. This pintxo is made with olive, pepper, anchovy, and a drop of olive oil.

¡Yummy!

Next, we present the main dishes; there are four to choose from.

Let's start with a hot dish for the cold winter days, called "porrusalda", which comes from “porru” (leek) and “salda” (soup). This dish consists of vegetables, mainly leeks, potatoes and carrots.

  Continuing with the vegetables, the next dish is called "Piperrada" 🌶️🌶️. In Basque cuisine, it is common to serve this dish along with meat and/or fish, and as its name indicates, the main ingredient is pepper itself, although a Piperrada can also be made with different vegetables.

The following one is a classic; Marmitako. Originally it was a meal of fishermen and sailors, who prepared in the stockpot a stew of tuna and potatoes, with the waste fish that were on board. This dish owes its name to the word "marmita" because it was the bowl in which the "Marmitako" was prepared on board. Currently it´s prepared with chopped onions and peppers, fish soup or with a tasty mashed potato.

Finally, a typical dish of any Basque family at Christmas dinner called in Basque "Bakailaoa pil-pil eran" 🐟. It´s another classic dishes of Basque cuisine, based on a sauce called pil-pil, which is made by mixing the oil used to fried the cod with its own juice. This mixture releases a gelatine when is frying the cod, that when is mixed with oil, it produces this famous sweet sauce.

If you aren´t completely full yet, as usually happens to Basque people, make room for more because we have three delicious desserts.

Let's start with the dessert we'll find in any cider house; cheese with a little quince and nuts.

Let's add a little more sweetness to the next dessert. Goxua (that means delicious in Basque) is a traditional sweet typical of Vitoria-Gasteiz and Basque cuisine. This popular dessert is made of cream, cake soaked with liqueur, pastry cream and liquid caramel.

Finally, and as it couldn't have been otherwise, "Euskal pastela" or “gâteau basque” 🥧. This sweet which originally is from Labourd, is a dough made of flour, butter, and eggs and is usually filled with pastry cream (although they can also be filled with black berry jam or other fruits).

Lehenik eta behin, goazen munduan mailan ezaguna den euskal pintxoen ordezkariarekin hastera; gildak. Hauek oliba, pipermina, antxoa eta oliba olio tanta batez osatuta daude.

¡ñam!

Jarraian plater nagusiak aurkeztuko ditugu; lau daude aukeratzeko.

Has gaitezen neguko egun hotzetarako plater bero batekin; porrusalda. Plater hau barazkiz osatuta dago, batez ere porrua, patatak eta azenarioa.

Barazkiekin jarraituz, ondorengo platera piperrada 🌶️🌶️ deitzen da. Euskal sukaldaritzan plater hau haragia edota arrainarekin batera zerbitzatzea ohikoa da, eta bere izenak ongi dioen bezala, osagai nagusia piperra bera da, nahiz eta Piperrada bat egiteko barazki desberdinak ere erabili daitezkeen.

Ondorengoa klasiko bat da; Marmitakoa. Jatorriz, arrantzale zein marinelen ohiko jaki bat zen. Hegaluze eta patata gisatuak prestatzen zituzten marmitan, itsasontzian zeuden arrainen hondakinekin. Plater honek "marmita" hitzari zor dio izena, ontzi horretan prestatzen bai zen marmitakoa itsasontzietan. Gaur egun, tipula eta piper zatituekin, arrain-saldarekin, edota patata-pure on batekin prestatzen da.

Azkenik, edozein euskal etxeetako eguberri afariko platera; Bakailaoa pil-pil eran 🐟. Euskal sukaldaritzako beste plater ospetsu bat da, eta pil-pil izeneko saltsan oinarritua dago, non bakailaoa frijitu dugun olioa bere zukuarekin nahastean sortzen da. Honek, gelatina bat askatzen du frijitzean, zein olioarekin lotzean, saltsa gozo bat sortuz.
