The traditional gastronomy from the Roncal valley has a clear reflection on the kitchens of Isaba, one of the northern villages from the Pyrenees of Navarra. The cuisine is conditioned by the pastoral lifestyle of the area. The migas de pastor is one of the most common dishes from this town. The calf meat is the most popular, generally in the shape of large steak, sirloin or entrecôte. The lamb, pork and trout from the Esca river, apart from the hunting meat, also have a place between everything there is to eat in Isaba.

During the season, the surrounding valleys are filled of mushrooms, such as the perrechico, the boletus and the robellón. They can be prepared by themselves or with a meat stew. The valley is also famous for its cheese with D.O.P., made with pure milk from the breed latxa and rasa of sheep. The gastronomy from this region can be fully enjoyed during the celebrations of the valley, such as the Tribute de las Tres Vacas. Also, the occasion is perfect for a glass of basaka, an apple moonshine that is distillated in many municipalities from the area and that is a great ending for a meal in Isaba.
