Gastronomy is first and foremost the product. And as the Seignanx is located between Landes and the Basque Country, gourmets and gourmets enjoy a wide range of local products that are the subject of Quality signs: AOP, IGP, Label Rouge… They can be found in the 4 corners of the Seignanx : on the market stalls, on the menu of restaurants, on the counters of the casetas, on the festive tables, in school canteens, corporate restaurants, food trucks… Here is some useful information and links that will delight your taste buds: bon appétit !
Les Landes are very popular with top chefs, who find iconic “high quality” products such as duck (foie gras, duck breast, etc.), sand asparagus that “spikes” in the spring, powerfull kiwis that grows in winter, the beef of Chalosse or the Blonde of Aquitaine side cattle, the sweet peppers… not to mention the fish, crustaceans and chipirons of the port of Capbreton.
These products serve as the basis for traditional recipes such as garbure, omelette aux piments, piperade, confit, foie-gras, tourtière or pastis…
Other landscapes, other products, other customs… As soon as you cross the bridge over the Adour, the contents of the plates change completely. They display pig (Bayonne ham), the essential sheep cheese, Pyrenean trout, chocolate (cocoa has entered France through the port of Bayonne), etc. whereas Espelette pepper systematically (and advantageously) replaces pepper.
