Bar Pinotxo:
God is in the Garbanzos

Bar Pinotxo Cookbook
Bar Pinotxo: God is in the Garbanzos

“Bar Pinotxo is at the center of my gastronomic universe.”
          — John Gorham



A chance encounter. A platoon of infant Loligo Vulgaris mercilessly mowed down in their prime. Magic white beans snatched from the center of a ring of ancient volcanoes. A magic word. Secret recipes honed by generations of finger licking. Gossip. War. A dog and of course a grandmother.

With a forwards by Toro Bravo's very own jefe de jefe, John Gorham, and Five Star Michelin Chef, Carme Ruscalleda, and written by former Portland native and award winning, internationally reknowned filmmaker, Robin Willis, “Bar Pinotxo: God is in the Garbanzos”, is a joyful and often poignant celebration of the history, stories, and recipes from the 17 stool chiringuito in the most famous mercado in the world.

“...take home this genius cookbook guaranteed by Juanito and the crew of Bar Pinotxo!”
          — Carme Ruscalleda
