Many experts regard the Basque Country as having one of the most varied and extensive gastronomies in the world (paradise of Michelin star restaurants). Here, gastronomy is not a passion, it is a religion. A pintxo (tapa) is not a meal, it is an aperitif. Our renowned chefs -like Eneko Atxa, Martín Berasategui, Josean Alija- apply their creativity to traditional Basque cuisine, interpreting select, locally sourced and seasoned ingredients with a touch of class. Ranging from freshly caught fish and seafood from the Cantabrian Sea to top quality meats that melt in the mouth, washed down with excellent wines from the region’s top wineries. The Basque cuisine came to stay. Since the beginning of time, no cuisine has been able to defeat it. Trends may change, but Basque cuisine persists.
