Industry City Chef’s Lab featuring Chef Alex Raij

Event Navigation


A first-of-its-kind chefs series, elevating the talent and tastes of New York City … all with a distinctive spin. Next up, the series will feature chef Alex Raij of La Vara, Txikito, and El Quinto Pino.

Alex Raij is half of the husband and wife team behind Txikito, New York’s most authentic Basque restaurant; El Quinto Pino, named the Absolute Best Tapas in New York by New York Magazine, and Michelin-starred La Vara, exploring Jewish and Moorish influence on Spanish cuisine.

Alex’s cookbook, The Basque Book: A Love Story in Recipes from the Kitchen of Txikito, is a deeply personal writer’s debut with more than 100 recipes inspired by the home cooking traditions of the Basque country. Alex distinguishes herself by creating memorable dishes that uniquely capture a sense of place without giving up a sense of personal intimacy. The result is delicious, inimitable and authentic on all levels
