Sukalki

The sukalki is a dish made with meat and potatoes.

The meat has to be sauteed first to create a protective layer, this way it doesn´t lose its juices during the cooking.

During the summer, the sukalki forms part of all the towns partys. They make competitions to elaborate the best dish of sukalki involving entire families, groups of friends, txokos components and gastronomic societies, in short, all those who love Basque cuisine.

The uniqueness of the act is to make a collective event, staged outside the home, which incorporates quality products in order to create exquisite dishes. The competition is part of the beauty of the act and the effort to improve the quality of the dishes is evident each year.
