WHAT IS A PINTXO?

A typical snack of the Basque Country, "pinchos" consist of small slices of bread upon which an ingredient or mixture of ingredients is placed and fastened with a toothpick, which gives the food its name "pincho", meaning "spike." Pinchos are usually eaten as an appetizer, accompanied by a small glass of young white wine (called txakoli, pronounced [chac-o-lee]) or beer. Pinchos are very common in the taverns of the Basque Country, and in other near areas, such as CantabriaLa Rioja, northern Burgos, and Navarre, where a variety of pinchos are served on trays at the bar.  The toothpick is used to keep ingredients from falling off the bread, as well as to keep track of the number of items that the customer has eaten. 

Pinchos can be very sophisticated, sometimes consisting of very elaborate (and sometimes expensive) fish, seafood, or meats.

Pinchos are used as an excuse for socializing. Typically, a group of friends will go from one tavern to another, drinking small glasses of wine or beer and eating pinchos.
