Essentials of Basque Cooking

Essentials of Basque Cooking

The Basque Country, the region in northwestern Spain that borders France, has long been visited by gastronomes from around the world, but perhaps never more than in recent years. Cities like Bilbao and San Sebastian are home to the most experimental and the most traditional of Spanish chefs, who equally dazzle with preparations that highlight the ingredients of the area, including plentiful seafood and delectable ham. In this class, you will learn how to make specialties of the region, including Pintxos (Basque tapas) like Baked Figs in Bayonne Ham, Txipirones en su Tinta, Basque Cod Croquettes, and Piquillo Peppers stuffed with Brandade; Porrusalda (leek and potato soup); Bacalao al Pil-Pil (salt cod with chile peppers); Piperrada (onion, pepper, and tomato sauté); and Gâteau Basque (almond flour cake with pastry cream filling). You will also taste the acclaimed cheese of the region: Idiazabal.
