Alex Raij and Eder Montero are the husband and wife team behind Txikito, Chelsea’s acclaimed Basque restaurant; El Quinto Pino, named the Absolute Best Tapas by New York Magazine, La Vara, exploring Jewish and Moorish influence in southern Spain; and Saint Julivert, a petit fisherie inspired by ports of call near and far. Their cookbook, The Basque Book: A Love Story in Recipes from the Kitchen of Txikito, is a deeply personal writer’s debut inspired by the home cooking traditions of the Basque country. Alex and Eder distinguish themselves by creating dishes that capture a sense of place without giving up a sense of personal intimacy. The result is delicious, inimitable, and authentic on all levels.
