"For the record... A la Basquaise or Kaskarot refers to a variety of dishes (particularly an omelette and sautéed chicken) made with tomatoes, peppers, garlic, chillies and onions. The Basque country would be nothing without its distinctive and original gastronomy and its famous regional products, which are the pride of the locals. "
