About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of 100 Basque recipes from Alex Raij and Eder Montero, the acclaimed chef-owners of New York City restaurants Txikito, La Vara, and El Quinto Pino.

Few cuisines have captured more diners' imaginations, or inspired more chefs and restaurants around the world than that of Spain. And within the Spanish culinary pantheon, Basque cooking from the north is considered one of the country's most fascinating and essential traditions. In  Basque, star chefs Alex Raij and Eder Montero take readers on a tour of the Basque countryside, in the process revealing the iconic ingredients, cooking techniques, and traditional dishes that define Basque cooking. They also share dishes from their award-winning New York restaurants, all inspired by the Basque kitchen but featuring elegant preparations and delightfully unexpected flavor combinations. The result is a complete primer on Basque cooking, with a wide array of recipes, ranging from a simple  pil pil or  refrito to showstopping  pintxos and mains.

About the Author: ALEXANDRA RAIJ and EDER MONTERO opened El Quinto Pino in 2007 followed by Txikito, New York's only Basque restaurant, in 2008. In 2012, they expanded to Brooklyn with La Vara, a restaurant whose dishes express the intersection of the Moorish, Jewish, and Christian foodways in Spain. REBECCA FLINT MARX is a senior editor at  San Francisco Magazine and the winner of the 2013 IACP Bert Greene Award for Culinary Memoir for her essay "From Sex Cake to Spurned Salad."
