The Basque Country of Europe is a region with a special ambiance all its own. Located in northern Spain and southwestern France, it's a land of green meadows and high mountains, rugged coastlines and white beaches, wooded valleys and dry plains.
The Basques are very serious about food. Basque cuisine is famous on both sides of the border, and several Basque chefs have been among the leaders of Spain's modernist cuisine movement. There are nearly 40 Michelin-starred restaurants in the French and Spanish Basque regions, with San Sebastián boasting a trio of restaurants awarded three Michelin stars (out of only seven 3-star restaurants in all of Spain). Known as the culinary capital of Spain, the city of San Sebastián has more Michelin stars per capita than anywhere else in the world.
Our Basque blend is a rustic assortment of spices inspired by the Basque region of Spain. This goes very well in marinades for vegetables or meat (especially for grilling), on potatoes, on eggs, or even to enhance pizza.
Ingredients include the delightful Piment d’Espelette pepper, marjoram, anise, caraway, orange peel, salt, and paprika.
