Basque Experiences on TV

Basque Experiences on TV!! Finally on line!!

My France with Manu is an Australian TV series on Channel 7. We had the pleasure of organising all the logistics and locations here in the the Basque Country last Autumn. Its also Manu’s first time catching something whilst being recorded!! Must have been the crew…..

We taught Manu how to cook a very traditional Basque dish, Squid in Ink Sauce!!  You cant beat catching, cooking and eating it all outdoors, by the sea!! All in all a great Basque Experience, we had a great time!! Here is one of the clips from the show!! Filmed in the old port of Getxo and with help from my mate Iñigo!!




My France with Manu

Basque Experiences records My France with Manu ! Check it out. A short trailer of the show that went out last week in Australia on Channel7. We had a great time arranging the shooting and locations for the 2 days the filming team were in the Basque Country. We cant wait to see the whole show!

There should be a couple of laughs in there and also a chance to see some of the beautiful Basque Country, specifically Donostia/San Sebastián and the entrance to the Port of Bilbao and the old fishing village of Algorta, Portu Zaharra/ Puerto Viejo.

On the cooking side of things, Manu learns how to fillet and to preserve anchovies Basque style before sampling some great pintxos in Bar Gandarias and Bar La Cepa in the old town of San Sebastián. After getting ourselves a little bit wet out in the Bay of Biscay, we sailed back into the Old Port of Algorta to show how to prepare a typical Basque dish; Squid in Ink Sauce! But you will have to wait for the show to come out here in Spain before we can put it on the site!!
