Eighty regional recipes from the beautiful Basque country of northern Spain. From its obsession with the perfect pintxos to boasting the most Michelin starred-restaurants per capita in the world, the Basque country in northern Spain offers plenty for food lovers. In Basque , José Pizarro shares recipes for the area's most-loved dishes, including the traditional bacalao (salt cod with pisto and allioli) and hake "à la plancha" with potatoes and Romesco sauce. He dispels the myth that creating traditional Spanish fare is a laborious task and shows you how to bring the experience of dining in city tapas bars to your own kitchen-enjoy croquetas (stuffed fried potato croquettes), tortilla de patatas (Spanish omelette), and Jamón Ibérico (cured ham). Featuring stunning views of the Basque country, this book will whisk you to the heart of Spanish culture.

The recipes are divided into Meat, Fish, Vegetables, and Dessert, and are straightforward and sufficiently explained. All levels of cooks will find something in this book that they can make and feel comfortable attempting ." - NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
