For the first time ever, the recipes for pintxos-the small savory and sweet dishes found in bars in Basque Country-are gathered to present the definitive bible on this significant food of Basque culture, along with the history and people who created them, written by award-winning author Marti Buckley.

Nestled in the nine square blocks of Old Town in San Sebastian, 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 layered cheese, quince, and walnut spread on toast, pintxos are impressive, well thought-out dishes, distilling ingredient know-how and creative cooking techniques into one or 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 100 recipes, bar profiles, histories, and vivid photographs, The Book of Pintxos unlocks a window into this dynamic Basque food culture for curious eaters everywhere.
