Food is an integral part of the Basque culture. Various members cook traditional and new dishes for the Club parties and fundraising events. Blood sausage are prepared every year for a Club sponsored dinner (Odolki Jatea). Individuals make chorizos and cured hams, as well.
A cooking club/class was conducted with interested members for over fifteen years. Efforts are now underway to revive the cooking group in a different format. A meeting was held with some of the original members to decide how to continue. A delicious potluck was organized to pique interest in maintaining this cooking tradition.
Photos of some of the original classes can be seen with the following links.
