Green gold

We like to take our gastronomy enthusiasts to this very authentic place: the Gernika Market (34 km from Bilbao). On Mondays the villagers from around the region reunite to sell the best of their gardens and pens.

Located in the center of this historic city honored by Picasso, a variety of products and stalls fill this traditional space with color.

We will soon be welcomed by one of this market star: the green pepper of Gernika.

Our friend Norman asked about them as soon as he got off the plane. Fairly normal!, as it may be one of the most delicious snacks produced by the earth.

Fried, served on a tray and topped with a little coarse salt; the first batch is the most tender and May is a good month to go in search for this delicacy.

Dare to try?
