Hmmm Basque gastronomy! Sunny flavors, which make the taste buds sing and have a delicious little holiday taste... In the Basque Country, we eat well and it is thanks to the breeders, growers and producers who carefully select local products, to invite to your table. We present to you the Basque specialties of Etxe Peio, producer and processor in his workshop in Espelette. On the occasion of the award of the Artisans Gourmands appellation to this traditional cannery which employs 50 people, we tasted their products, but only to tell you more about them... :)

Basque gastronomy, inseparable from this region of character

Basque specialties are like the territory that gave them birth: they have character, taste, flavors that are present and immediately identifiable for gourmets who love them. Meats exceptional, fondant hams, with powerful aromas and delicate on the palate, casseroles composed of tender meat, finely statements Espelette pepper (the real taste signing of the Basque Country), peppers of all colors, fish specialties or of meats (pork, duck, goose) in preserves or jars, to be opened for special occasions. It is this identity borrows from very specific flavors that the Etxe Peio cannery captures wonderfully, to restore all the good taste of the Basque Country in their preparations.

A meal of Basque specialties

To bring back a little of the Basque Country in your suitcases, to concoct a meal with flavors from here, but over there, at home: push the door of one of the Etxe Peio shops.

For a beautiful holiday table, a meal with friends, Basque dishes have an undeniable convivial character. Festive, they can be eaten without fuss and are appreciated by everyone, including children. Espelette pepper, which is used in several specialties in jars, canned food, pâtés, terrines, foie gras and also stews, is very sweet! It is said to be the pepper from the Basque Country and it has largely replaced the classic pepper when the importation of this one was too expensive, giving its note so floral and particular to the traditional Basque recipes.

In Etxe Peio shops, you can also find wine from the Basque Country, craft beers, liqueurs and other aperitifs to enjoy before a meal or as a digestif. Place one of the tender sausages matured for 4 weeks in the Espelette dryer in your basket. Etxe Peio is attentive to consumers' feedback, so when they were advised to increase the ripening period to multiply the flavors, they followed this good advice, with the desire to bring the best of quality to their customers.
