The fact that it is flanked by the abundant sea on one side and fertile land on the other, you’ll find a diversity of dishes, from seafood and meats to beans, cheeses, ciders and wines.

Because this pepper is so prevalent to the Basque region cuisine and economy, it was confirmed as an PDO/AOC product in 2000 and an APO product in August 2002. AOC stands for Appellation d’origine contrôlée, or “controlled designation of origin”.
