Basque Country: Book Launch Pintxos Party with Marti Buckley
Tue | Sep 04, 2018 | 6:30–8:30P
Teacher Marti Buckley
In Basque Country, Marti Buckley, an American chef, journalist, and passionate Basque transplant, unlocks the mysteries of this unique culinary world by bringing together its intensely ingredient-driven recipes with stories of Basque customs and the Basque kitchen, with vivid photographs of both food and place.
Marti will demonstrate recipes from the book* and share stories of her life in the Basque region. Please note that guests will not do any hands-on cooking during the event.
The Civic Kitchen will transform into a one-night-only pintxos (Basque tapas) bar, serving up a plentiful menu of recipes from the book for your enjoyment, along with Txakoli, the Basque country’s slightly sparkling, very dry white wine, and Marti’s beloved vermouth.
*A signed copy of Basque Country: A Culinary Journey Through a Food Lover's Paradise is included in the price of this event. Special thanks to Omnivore Books for book support and The Spanish Table for the outstanding Basque country food products used throughout our menu .
