It’s the perfect time of year to try a new food gathering. Pull out your patio furniture, call your friends and family and tell them to bring their favorite Spanish wine a new appetizer or snack recipe to try. However, tell them to bring the ingredeints for the recipe, instead of having everything prepared. Half the fun of this Txoko is cooking together and trying new things. At the end, you will have a slew of small pintxos, or small bites and snacks, and you will feel inspired in your culinary world.
