I've spent the last several years developing this very special book. It is the book the Basques deserve—a look at their most traditional, beloved recipes, complete with the history behind each one and the step-by-step process for recreating them, wherever you are in the world.

My time in the Basque Country has shaped my beliefs and attitude toward food. From the prologue, by Bittor Arginzoniz of Asador Etxebarri, to the glossary on Basque words, this book is a labor of love dedicated to one of the world's most special people.

The Basques are a unique, noble people that are, most importantly, obsessed with good eating. Find out why (and what Basque cooking is really about) in my book, Basque Country. Come visit me on my book tour at an event near you.

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.
