Spanish people are fiercely proud of their heritage, language and their food and drink. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the Basque Country, an area at the north of Spain, bordering the Atlantic Ocean and France.
A major city within the region is San Sebastian, well-known for having a rich mixture of traditions which are quite often deep-rooted in food and cooking. From its obsession with the perfect ‘pinxtos’ to holding the most Michelin stars per head than anywhere else in the world, there’s plenty to talk about here.
In Basque, José Pizarro will show readers how to create some of the best-loved dishes from Basque at home. He will dispel the myth that creating tapas and traditional Spanish fare is scary and show you how to take the great experience of being in the little bars of San Sebastián into your own kitchen. The food of this region is wonderful to share with your family and friends – but it’s also about fun, informality and not being a slave to your stove!
Set to the backdrop of the stunning views of San Sebastian and the rest of Basque country, you’ll really feel like you’re on a magical holiday in Spain. José has also put together some menus and drinks suggestions to help you plan, shop, cook and, most importantly, enjoy this wonderful way of eating and socialising.
