The “Pintxatu” project saw the light one night when Fermin Muguruza (the energetic frontman of legendary Basque bands Kortatu and Negu Gorriak, also an accomplished movie and documentary director whose prolific career spans well over two decades) was enjoying dinner at a restaurant called “A Fuego Negro” (black fire), located in the old district of San Sebastian. There, the inspired Chefs served mouth watering, one-of-a-kind “tapas” dishes (“Tapas” is the generic name for a wide variety of appetizers in Spanish cuisine, which can either be served cold or warm) while African American music played in the background. Just like Fermin, they were also big time funk, reggae and hip hop lovers.
It didn’t take long before they collectively hatched the plan of creating a book of original recipes that would be directly inspired by the rhythms they enjoyed. Without missing a beat, Fermin reached out to his many musician friends and artistic connections around the world and, with the culinary help of the chefs of “A Fuego Negro,” photographic input of Alex Iturralde and slick creations of illustrator David Navascues, the collective created “Pintxatu.”
“Pintxatu” brings the best of music, cuisine and art together, with every recipe written in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Euskara, the Basque language.
The result? A slick, hip, 92-page tapas cookbook and CD compilation designed to satisfy all your sensory cravings. An epicurean feast for your taste buds, ears and eyes.
