LA FERME AUX PIMENTS
Petit Futé's opinion on LA FERME AUX PIMENTS
History: come and discover the land, the culture, the tastes and the flavours of the Espelette PDO pepper, spice and heritage of the Basque Country. Pierre and his family will be delighted to welcome you. You can visit the pepper farm, in an exceptional site in the heart of the Basque Country, 5 km from Ainhoa, classified among the most beautiful villages of France. Espelette is 9 km away, Sare 6 km and the border with Spain 2.5 km away. This is an opportunity to take a look at this precious chilli pepper for Basque cuisine (and even for the whole of France), which is traditionally strung up on ropes to hang in garlands under the eaves of Basque farms so that it dries well before being ground into powder.
Products: Espelette chilli pepper is used to season piperade and during the maturing of Bayonne ham. It is also used to season omelettes, ratatouille, veal, rabbit, stewed lamb, grilled fish, and Spanish-style tomato and onion salad. Gustatively, the Espelette pepper, which is used by the great chefs of the world, is half as strong as the Cayenne pepper and replaces the pepper. Stock up for the year and don't miss the chilli festival in the village of Espelette on the last weekend in October.Catering: for events and receptions, La Ferme aux Piments offers different spaces for 140 to 300 people. For cocktails and seminars, it is an exceptional setting with a terrace overlooking the Rhune and its garden area. Space for caterers.
