Context

The Basque Country is a region on the border between Spain and France, its culinary art has logically become the alliance of two gastronomies that has been refined over the centuries to become what it is today. By blending products from its valleys, the ocean and the mountains, Basque cuisine stands out from everything else around the world, to the greatest delight of our gourmets. Mainly made up of gastronomy professionals, our group wishes to explore the infinite culinary diversity of the Basque Country. For these fine gourmets, going to meet the gastronomy of the Basque Country obviously means reveling in its flavours but also meeting its most talented actors to understand its full richness. We have opened the doors of the most ancestral establishments to them and led them to the origin of the products that make up this cuisine that is so singular.

Clients reviews

Marie Tesson had created for us in November 2017 a tailor made journey around vineyard in the Burgundy region. Our clients from different cultures and backgrounds but all of them with high expectations were absolutely delighted. Ms. Tesson did a great job, her knowledge, her skills and her capacity to listen and to adapt were key factors for the success of our journey. I highly recommend Ms. Tesson to any client who wishes a high quality event.
Hi Marie, We had a delightful time! Thank you very much for designing a great tour. We particularly enjoyed the olive oil tour/tasting, truffle hunting, and cooking class. Thibault was a fantastic tour guide, too. I particularly appreciated his flexibility and patience with us. (…) Again, we had a lovely time and appreciate your effort for making our vacation great. I already miss Provence!
Highly recommend. I am not easily impressed, but Marie managed the impossible throughout our entire Champagne experience. She was able to secure private and exclusive access to prestigious houses, which is a privilege reserved only for major distributors and celebrities. Each visit was unique, exclusive, educational and delicious. Looking forward to working with her to explore the rest of France.
