The Basque Market offers a variety of cooking classes with wine tastings each month. We can also customize a private class for you and your friends or colleagues! We taste three to four wines from the Iberian Peninsula. You’ll not only learn some great recipes, but also a fair amount about the wines of this region.

Classes are pre-paid and non-refundable. Please give us a call at 208-433-1208 or stop into the market to register and pay.

The evening begins at 5:45 pm for a tasting of four carefully selcted wines. Cooking insructions will begin at about 6:00 pm and typically run 1-2 hours. Light tapas are also provided at the beginning of class.

Classes start at $40/person, paid in advance and are non-refundable. If for some reason you can’t make it, feel free to send a friend in your place.

Basque Garden Bounty

September 7th

It is that time of year where the peppers, tomatoes and summer squash are taking over the garden.  We will put those Basque Summer staples to good use by preparing Pan de tomate, grilled bread with tomato pulp, garlic and Jamon Serrano along with Pisto, Spain’s answer to Ratatouille.  We will also compose a classic summer favorite; Entsalada de Tomate, with fresh tomatoes, Basque tuna in olive oil and onion in a sherry vinaigrette.  Salmorejo, cold tomato, garlic and bread soup will round out the spread as a refreshing no-cook starter.

Warming Basque Specialties

October 26th

As the weather cools down, what could be more comforting that a steaming bowl of traditional Basque Garlic Soup, served with crunchy, cheesy Idiazabal toasts.  We will also prepare a thick and rich Lentil Stew with Chorizo. Three recipes that will surely be in your repertoire of favorite cold weather meals.
