Tapas, the quintessential Spanish cuisine is more than just food, it is a way of life. The serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation, so as people are not so focused on eating an entire meal that is set upon them. Sociable and appetizing, tapas is an excellent reflection of the Spanish people and their tradition.
