Pintxos



When I was in Spain, one of the things that more I liked was the tapeo. The friends come out, and chat with their friend beside a bar, eating tapas and pinchos or pintxos, that are made with a small bread piece with a portion of food sustained by a toothpick or on a bamboo skewers. These kinds of appetizers are very regular in the Basque countries, Cantabria, Navarra and La Rioja. Then, I thought: do like the Spanish...and I did.The ingredients above the bread can be any type of food. In my prickles I have put two types of tomatoes (dry and fresh), gorgonzola cheese. Also pizza bread, that I put tomatoes, cheese and basil. But they can also be with fish and sea food. It can be accompanied by beer or a wine glass.

Mmm, tapas are amazing! What a great way to dine -- you get to try a couple of different things along with your wine or cocktail.
