Reviews

"Buckley evokes the spirit of the Basque people through cultural insight and classic recipes."
--National Geographic, Inspiring Books to Gift Travelers

"This book gives you a true taste of northern Spain, including an entire section devoted to pintxos, the snacks served at Basque Country bars. . . . The little bites are so good that they may inspire a New Year's resolution: Throw more cocktail parties!
--Rachael Ray Every Day, The Best Cookbooks to Gift This Year

"Part cultural history and part recipe revelation. . . . Unfussy and seasoned with tradition."
--Garden & Gun

"Both a guidebook and a cookbook. . . . Richly illustrated with photographs of the people and places, it provides a surprisingly thorough introduction to Basque history, language and food values, which in turn illuminate the wheres and whys of the traditional recipes [Buckley] shares, sometimes for the first time anywhere."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Delightful . . . a well-researched set of accessible Basque recipes."
--Publishers Weekly

"Marti is an Alabama girl with the heart of a Basque. Her book takes you inside the homes, bars, restaurants, and even the txokos (the private dining clubs) of Basque Country in a way that Americans have never seen before. This is truly insider access, an authentic look at the traditions of one of the most incredible culinary regions of the world."
--José Andrés

"Basque Country is one of the most heartfelt, exciting books on food I've seen; Marti Buckley makes you fall in love with the unique, real, and rustic flavors and textures of Basque Country, where the pursuit of something great to eat is given cult-like status. There is a purity and honesty to the writing and to these recipes. I will cook from and return to this book time and time again."
--Frank Stitt, chef/owner of Highlands Bar & Grill

"This collection of recipes . . . whisk[s] us straight to our grandmother's table and the dining societies, restaurants, bars, and grill houses of Basque Country."
--from the foreword by Bittor Arginzoniz, chef/owner of Etxebarri

"Marti Buckley has uncovered the roots of Basque cooking in this thorough, beautiful book that honors the soul of our cuisine."
--Juan Mari and Elena Arzak, chefs/owners of Restaurante Arzak

"Buckley compiles so many of my childhood favorite recipes to create a truly classic Basque repertoire. You'll be transported to Sunday bar crawls, snowy-day bean stews, summer-day anchovy feasts, and Basque Country's distinct seasons. It's a thorough look at the Basque cooking philosophy as well as a true portrait of my ancient culture."
--Aran Goyoaga, creator of Cannelle et Vanille and author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats
