With leftovers of dough for the gâteaux basques, I baked the crust of a tartelette and a few cookies. On the crust, big dices of mango. Plus a pinch of ground salt and hot chili. You have to try that, just a pinch on mango, and it enhances spectacularly the flavor of a fruit that is already delicious.
Great dessert.

Another Basque dish, to match the cakes. It’s called axoa, and you say that : “ashowa” like ” Ah ! shhh ! wah ! “. Because it’s …mmm, and you never make enough of it.

The name would refer to hashing, the meat, the veggies…

Veal is more common. I’ve used pork. To compensate the absence of the famous Espelette pepper for which this dish was invented, I’ve mixed :
-fresh long green sweet peppers
-fresh red paprika
-a bit of frozen hot Korean red chili
-some paprika powder
