What are Tapas?

Spanish Foods, tapas-Spanish style dining

    Tapas are not so much a kind of food as a Spanish way of eating. Strictly speaking, they are an Andalusian way of eating because Andalusia is truly the home of tapas.  Spain’s famous appetizer cuisine is one of the most exciting, rewarding, and varied in the world as it includes dishes that contain a kaleidoscope of ingredients, prepared in a style to perfectly suit every occasion, taste and diet. Historically in Spain, bartenders would cover - or tapar - wine glasses with a small plate in order to protect the drink from fruit flies. Soon, they took to placing a simple slice of ham on top of this plate, an addition which naturally appealed to bar patrons. Thus giving birth to what we know today as Spanish tapas style dining.
