Ask any Basque what is a Basque brunch and you get a blank stare back, although we have been “celebrating” ( anything involving food should be celebrated) for more than 200 years. Say hamaiketako and the world stops. Hamaiketako means “for 11 am”. Thats when we stop and go for something savory after our short and sweet breakfast. This tradition comes from our rural world where the hard physical work requiered many breaks for garlic soup, cream from fresh milk, chorizo,bacon, cheese,cold cuts, eggs and lots of wine and cider to wash It down.But It was done at 10 am ( hamarretako..still heard today) Late 19th century with the industrial Revolution the farmers had to adapt.They came to the cities, working hours were different and their break was an hour later. Join us for a traditional brunch that you wont forget.
SPANISH BREAKFAST, BASQUE BRUNCH
We recommend a spanish breakfast before our tour, 2 cafés solo and a little sweet pastry…and if we were in the 70s you would finish with a cigarrete and maybe a liquer! Thats all super forbidden now. But thank God chorizo isnt!! So our brunch on this countryside pig farm is a bacon lovers delight. Not to be missed. No joke! Check out our unique foodie tours: https://ift.tt/3hhTsZg
SUNDAYS ARE BRUNCH DAYS
Funny thing about Sundays here, Its dress up day. Like your kids should wear pants( no trackers), you actually wear make up ( well maybe a dab of Lipstick) and off you go. Where and to do what you might ask? To eat and drink, just prettier. So our brunch also goes up a notch. We want the best of the best. And plenty of the good stuff because there is only one sin in our book: not enough food. Sex by the way is not a sin, its considered a miracle. But thats another post. If you want every day to be Sunday, you know who to call.
