Description

Pork confit will transport you to the Basque Country – and it’s as easy as opening your store cupboard! The confit is made with local Basque pork that’s slowly cooked in pork and duck fat until it’s meltingly tender. The meat is then tinned with the fat to preserve it.

Before cooking, remove as much fat as you can from the pork fillets with a spoon or spatula. Save this fat in a sealed container – you can use it to make crispy and flavourful roast potatoes. Slice the pork thinly and lightly fry or grill. Serve with sautéed potatoes, a bean stew or steamed green vegetables for an easy gourmet meal.

Maison Arostéguy is a Basque institution. The Arostéguy family opened a unique grocery store in Biarritz in 1875, importing goods from all over the world. In the 1930s, their reputation for high-quality products even attracted famous musicians and actors. Photographs and keepsakes are still on display in the store today.

As a family of spice grinders, they also created their own spice blends. Current owner, Pierre Arostéguy, travels the globe looking for inspiration and rare ingredients. He is also passionate about promoting his native Basque food culture. Pierre sums up Maison Arostéguy’s philosophy with the following phrase: ‘For us, no table is good without generosity, creativity & conviviality’.

Ingredients: pork meat (shoulder round fillet, fillet or spare rib), pork and duck fat, salt. Origin of all raw material: France.
