TAPAS.... The little dishes of Spain.

The style of Food known as Tapas is said to have originated in Andalucia. When Taverns were hot and humid flies would congregate and fall into Guests Sherry glasses, so the Bartender would cover the drink with a slice of bread. In Spanish the verb "to cover" is tapar.

Naturally enterprising Tasca (Tapas Tavern) owners began to put Anchovies, Tomato or Cheese on their bread and Tapas grew into a daily part of Spanish life.

The rich tapestry of Spanish cooking is a result of influences from Romans, Moors, Celts, and French using the abundance of foodstuffs available through the busy Spanish Ports. Many items used today e.g. Salt Cod (Bacalao), Chorizo, Roasted Peppers came about as means of preserving foods and developed through the centuries. New foods were also introduced to Europe from Asia, India, and the Americas.
