Gorriak, a passionate brand for gourmets

The recipe is at the heart of the concerns of the 3 Chefs at the origin of this original project: Chef, Chef of the cannery and Chef of the ham dryer, they met together at the table of the Etchehandia restaurant in Espelette, to redo the world… And here they are creating a brand, a concentrate of their know-how, their best recipes and desires to share around Basque cuisine!

All Gorriak products are cooked in Espelette. 500m from the restaurant are the cannery and the ham dryer (the only ones in the village). The Chefs have put together a reasonable but very complete range for the launch of their new brand. Their common project is to make the high quality and know-how of their production more widely known. Because here in Espelette, it is artisanal production methods that are at work, inspired by authentic local traditions. The products used to make these recipes come from short circuits. For 50 years, the Conserverie has been working to create top-of-the-range recipes, so that each jar, each can open to the consumer, is as appetizing and gourmet as a homemade dish. Controlled cooking, just to the point so as not to denature the food, preserve its nutritional qualities, its texture and visual aspect, it is a guarantee of know-how!
