The Baztán Valley in Navarre II

Today I am going to jump straight into the main recipe, one of my favourite Spanish puddings. As I have admitted in the past, I love custard. Some people think custard a little sweet, well this pudding balances that sweetness with unsweetened whipped cream. With a bit of caramelised sugar on top this one is a winner and not that difficult to make at all.

This pudding is called Goxua and the name comes from the Basque language…….

As part of the trip we decided to stop in the town of Amaiur / Maya. The town is famed for being the last town to fall in the Spanish conquest of the Kingdom of Navarra and now gives its name to a Basque nationalist political party. More importantly it has a working flour mill that grinds organic corn that is made into the locally famous Talos.

The recipe that follows comes from the miller himself. He can also be seen preparing a stuffed talo in the following video…….
