An important element of Basque culture is cuisine, but here on a Sunday morning it was perfectly ok that there was only snack and pastry to feed a hungry pilgrim. Be it the “Euskal pastela” (Basque cake), some spicy “txoripan” (bread stuffed with chorizo) or some sweet “bombas”, tasting new foods has been a delight during the Camino. It is amazing how food can be a conversation starter or an act of love itself. Our kitchens in our own homes are acts of love.
