Description: Chef Gerald Hirigoyen's native Basque country is home to Spain's most innovative tapas tradition -- a tradition he honors in his hugely popular San Francisco restaurants. But tapas -- or pintxos (pronounced "PEEN-chos") as they are known in the Basque language -- are not only a convivial way to dine out with friends, but they are also ideal for stylish entertaining at home. 

In Pintxos, Hirigoyen adapts 75 of his authentic, delectable, and California-inflected tapas for the home kitchen, ranging from seared dishes to fried bites, soups to skewers. Casual and committed cooks alike will find perfectly tuned recipes for both familiar fare (Salt Cod with Piperade on crusty bread; Fava Beans with Creme Fraiche and Mint) and favorites with a twist (Oxtail Empanadas with Spicy Mango Dip; Scallops with Lychee Gazpacho). And since a great tapas experience calls for wonderful wines, Pintxos pairs each preparation with notes advising which wines and wine styles complement the food. Woven throughout the book are arresting, inspiring photographs by award-winning food photographer Maren Caruso, bringing to vivid life the pleasures of these Basque bites. 

Good food, good wine, good friends: here is a feast for the soul and the senses that will inspire you to make your next get-together -- whether it's for two or twenty-two -- a pintxos party.
