Discover a cuisine rich in aromas and with the reddish hues of espelette peppers. The Basque country throws open its doors and, in an authentic old town inn housed in what used to be a postal coaching inn, the chef of the Alambic (an ex-Rugby prop) reveals the secrets of sauce basquaise, the preparation of foie gras or confit, and his famous recipes for piperades and chipirons, for all of which the generous cuisine of this heartland of French gastronomy is deservedly renowned.
Come into the heart of the Basque country by the kitchen door! A range of different lessons is available: 1 hr, 2 hrs or 3 hrs. After the lesson you will sample, either in the inn itself or in its XIXth century vaulted cellars, the dishes you have prepared with your colleagues or clients, creating bonds based on conviviality, fraternity and sharing which only the cuisine and the friendly welcome offered by the Basque country can foster.
