Delicious and delicate morsels

What are "Tapas?" If you have visited Spain, you'll know that they are small savoury dishes often served with a drink as a snack in a bar. They are often combined with other tapas and the larger "raciones" to make up a delicious meal. It is a great way to sample and try a variety of the dishes on offer.

Tapas of all shapes and sizes

To "tapear", refers to going from bar to bar for drinks and tapas, essentially a pub crawl with food. It is an important part of the culture in Spain and enjoyed by all ages. Going for tapas means having a good time, sharing with friends and enjoying life through gastronomy.
