Basque cuisine: tradition, modernity and exceptional raw materials
Basque cuisine is deeply rooted in tradition and has been maintained over time thanks to the great gastronomic culture of its people, both in homes, restaurants, and in the famous Basque societies.
This, along with the effort and culinary revolution carried out by great chefs, such as Martín Berasategui, is why Basque cuisine has evolved so much over the years.
This online course showcases several of the most traditional and representative Basque recipes. It consists of two parts. First we will see how the most traditional recipes will be prepared in a traditional way, and then how they can be executed in fine dining restaurants with more innovative and cutting-edge techniques.
At the end of this course you will be able to:
* Learn about the origin of Basque cuisine and farmhouse recipes
* Discover the philosophy behind the products and the cuisine of a Chef like Martín Berasategui
* Make eight of the most typical Basque recipes, using traditional and avant-garde techniques.
