The Book of Pintxos: Discover the Legendary Small Bites of Basque Country

by Marti Buckley

 

Nestled in the Old Town of San Sebastián, Spain, is a culinary tradition unlike any other in the world: the pintxo. Ranging from a simple anchovy-and-pepper toothpick skewer to a decadent dish of tender beef cheek over creamy potatoes, pintxos are impressive, well thought-out dishes, distilling ingredient know-how and creative cooking techniques into just a few bites. Bar owners take pride in their pintxo recipes, which are often closely protected and passed down through generations. In the first authoritative book on this subject, author and Basque transplant Marti Buckley defines what makes a pintxo, traces its history back several decades, and shares the recipes so home cooks can authentically recreate these tiny morsels in their own kitchens. Through 70 recipes, bar profiles, histories, and vivid photographs, The Book of Pintxos unlocks a window into this dynamic Basque food culture for curious eaters everywhere.
