The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Spanish

Description: Navarra was previously a kingdom of norther Spain and southern France, consisting of what is now Navarra in Spain and Basse-Pyrénées in France. Navarra now is a region of northern Spain between the Basque Country and Aragón with La Rioja to the south. Its capital is Pamplona, famous for its bull run. Sugar beet, vines and cereal crops are cultivated. In itself it has no particular reputation for its cuisine, except for its use of game and the freshwater fish that abound in its rivers and lakes, These are usually, as in the Basque Country, served with sauces such as chilindrón or cochifrito.
