My mother went on vacation to Biarritz to spend a wonderful stay in peace and relaxation. She took advantage of an enchanting setting in a Biarritz rental to learn about the realities in terms of gastronomy, culture and entertainment, but also the quality of the beaches in Biarritz. She tells us about her experiences.
The truth of the plates
The dishes subtly reveal our provenance and our origin. Biarritz reveals its cuisine through the "ttoro" which is a specialty of the Basque coast. This very pleasant traditional soup is cooked with fish. This excellent soup full of proteins was the magic recipe of the fishermen who went to sea. This soup could contain different varieties of fish such as monkfish or hake. Conger was also present in this sensational dish. We sometimes found in this soup with a strong taste, depending on availability, seafood, but also crustaceans. Another tuna-based specialty is raging in this region. This special stew is called marmitako.
