TAPAS

 

Historically, tapas were started in Spain in an effort to curb public drunkenness, the then king of Spain made it mandatory for bars to serve food to their patrons. At first this offering was very basic, consisting mainly of bread with a simple topping, and was presented on the rim of your wine glass, hence the word “tapa”, meaning to cover in Spanish. it quickly became apparent that the popularity of the establishments was as a result of the quality and variety of their tapas. A tapas revolution commenced resulting in the creation of a cuisine that has

become a Spanish national treasure.
