Pintxos + Petiscos Pintxos + Petiscos

In the Basque region of Northern Spain, the word Pintxos literally translates to “toothpick food” – and that is a very apt name for a delectable morsel of food held that pairs perfectly with wine or beer. Petiscos is a Portuguese food tradition that’s similar to the more well-known tapas – but these “small plate” foods are inherently different, and vary from location to location. Fresh local ingredients and spices are at the heart of the many different food traditions found throughout the Iberian Peninsula, often considered a “perfect meal.” Learn a little bit more below – and if you missed the insideTauck presentation by Tauck Director Halsey Kinne on Portugal’s cultural traditions, you’ll find it in the link to the right.
