Food Tour Basque Country | guided gourmet visit of the french basque country
Starting from Biarritz, we will have a first stop in Aihnoa, an authentic village close to the Spanish border. You will discover our tradition of Kintoa ham and delicatessen products (chorizo, lomo, saucisson and so on…), followed by a tasting.
We will then head to the Village of Itxassou, to discover Ossau Iraty Cheese (ewe’s milk). We will visit the farm of Mirentxu, the shepherd, to discover her work, her sheep and the Ossau Iraty cheese fabrication process. Taste the flavors of this local cheese…with a touch of Black cherry jam! This is a way we eat it here!
How could we end this roadtrip without visiting the lovely village of Espelette, famous for its red peppers. This trendy condiment, very appreciated by French chefs, hangs on all the house fronts in the village! Annie, an Espelette pepper farmer, will welcome us in her shop for a tasting of local specialties made with this condiment. Enjoy the tasty atmosphere of Espelette with free time in the village, before heading back to Biarritz!
