    "As an aside... Many different dishes are described as “Basque” or Kaskarot” (notably omelettes and sautéed chicken) when they use tomato, pepper, garlic, chili pepper and onion. The Basque region is renowned for its distinct and original cuisine and its famous regional products its locals are so proud of".
