Basque Pate with Espelette Pepper
Basque pate with espelette pepper will transport you to the Basque Country with every bite. To enjoy the artisan pate in true Basque fashion, spread thickly on slices of fresh baguette and serve with a side of pickled guindilla peppers.
The buttery Basque pate is made with specially selected cuts of local pork. The unique Basque chilli pepper, espelette, adds a slight kick of fruity warmth.
Maison Arostéguy is a Basque institution. The Arostéguy family opened a unique grocery store in Biarritz in 1875, importing goods from all over the world. In the 1930s, their reputation for high-quality products even attracted famous musicians and actors. Photographs and keepsakes are still on display in the store today.
As a family of spice grinders, they also created their own spice blends. Current owner, Pierre Arostéguy, travels the globe looking for inspiration and rare ingredients. He is also passionate about promoting his native Basque food culture. Pierre sums up Maison Arostéguy’s philosophy with the following phrase: ‘For us, no table is good without generosity, creativity & conviviality’.
