Fish Soup with Espelette Pepper
Fish soup with espelette pepper is the spirit of the Basque people in a jar. The classic French soup has been given a Basque makeover with the delicate warmth of espelette pepper.
For a quick gourmet supper or starter, enjoy the fish soup piping hot with croutons, a garlicky rouille and grated gruyère cheese on the side.
The fish in this soup are all locally sourced from the Basque coast.
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’.
