Our collaborators at Astarbe Sagadotegia are preparing something big. The cider house which is right smack in the middle of its Txotx! Season is converting its dining room and cider house into a hub of information about our expedition, Newfoundland, and the tradition of Basque whaling. It’s to be expected from a place that has been producing cider for over 450 years, been run by the same family for 15 generations, and whose oldest legal document dates back to 1563, the apotheosis of Basque whaling activity in Canada. Cider, of course, being an indispensable provision for the sailors and whale-hunters of the period. We want to encourage anyone who is interested in having one of the best meals of their life to visit Astarbe and check out what they’ve put together.
