France : Chili Pepper Market in Basque Country ( 80 photos ).

I wanted to reblog this as it’s quite close to us and because I use ‘piment d’Espelette’ all the time.

 Located on the foothill of the Southern Pyrenees and close to the Spanish border, Espelette is an authentic basque village which has preserved its traditions. Numerous monuments witness of its heritage but Espelette is above all renown thanks to sun dried fragrant Chili pepper……the pepper celebration takes place each year in October, this is the opportunity to discover all the local food produced here in the French Basque Country. Come with us for a walk!
