In Basque cuisine, the preference is to adorn ingredients as little as possible. In expert hands, this translates into refined and delicate flavours, textures, and aromas.

Nerua Guggenheim Bilbao: à Nature dictates the menu at Nerua Guggenheim Bilbao, where, true to this principle, Chef Josean Alija changes his repertoire with the seasons.
