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 5:30 pm for a tasting of four carefully selected wines. Cooking instructions 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.

The Wonderful World of Membrillo

Wednesday, April 17th

If you aren’t familiar with Membrillo, you are really missing out. Made from a fruit called Quince, membrillo is a tangy yet sweet thick preserve that pairs fabulously with salty cheeses and meats.



Join us and learn 3 great tapas using this versatile ingredient. Flaky puff pastry straws filled with membrillo and Idiazabal cheese, membrillo glazed chorizo and Bandarillas of almond crusted membrillo & thin ribbons of jamon serrano.  These recipes are fun, easy and impressive.
