Traditional

cuisine

At Goierri Foods, our aim and philosophy is not just to offer well known Spanish dishes such as paella but to make known to people in the UK the wonderful variety of delicious dishes that originate from Spain and, more specifically, the Basque Country, prepared in a completely authentic way.

 

The Basque Country is an area where the gentle mountains meet the coast, providing the raw materials for cheeses and rennet made from sheep's milk, apples, sausages and a wonderful range of fish dishes.

 

Basque cuisine is probably the most underrated and little known in Europe, being for many years off the normal Spanish tourist track. Yet some of the top chefs in the world are Basque. Furthermore, San Sebastian, the capital of Guipuzkoa, was recently voted the gastronomic capital of the world. To visit a bar in this city, with its myriad of different and colourful pintxos (tapas) spread out on the counter is an irresistible experience.

About

Goierri Foods

Goierri Foods was established in 2012 by Eric Jenner Mendia. Born in the shadow of Mount Txindoki in the Basque region of Goierri in Spain, from which the name of my company comes, Eric studied for 2 years under the gaze of the legendary Karlos Arguiñano, perhaps the most influential chef in the Spanish speaking world, at the prestigious Aiala School of Catering in Zarautz on the coast of Guipuzkoa.

 

13 years in various restaurants and hotels in the Basque Country and Catalonia, finally becoming head chef which involved organising weddings and other social events as well as the day-to-day running of the restaurant.

 

In 2012, after 13 years of experience working in some of the top restaurants and hotels in the Basque Country and Catalonia, Eric came to the UK to set up his own catering business, focussing on Spanish and Basque cuisine. It began in local markets and eventually spread to food festivals until Eric was providing a Spanish cuisine catering service for weddings and parties of up to 200 people in and around Exeter.

 

Now, in 2017, Goierri Foods provides the most authentic Spanish cuisine experience within 100 miles of Exeter. Eric’s experience and devotion to the authenticity of his native Basque cuisine has earned him a reputation for excellence, with various food festivals and awards to support his success.
