As promised, here are the Quince, Prosciutto and Blue Cheese Toasts that I served for my boyfriend’s birthday two weeks ago. They were hands down my favorite items on the menu this night. It’s no secret that I adore prosciutto and blue cheese, and the two combined are a match made in heaven. I also loved the touch of sweetness brought by the quince paste. These toasts are definitely a feast for your mouth!
To be more accurate, I should have called these ‘pintxos’ instead of toasts. Pin-what? Yeah, I figured you would be confused. I was too. Pintxos (pronounced pinchos) are bite-sized snacks served on skewers in bars and restaurants of the Basque Country in northern Spain. The funny thing is that pintxos are usually sitting on the counter for easy self-service and at the end of the night, you simply count the number of skewers you have to calculate your bill. Brilliant if you ask me! That being said, when you try them at your next party, don’t make your guests pay for their skewers, mmkay? That would be a little bit rude and not so funny
