Tapas Made Easy is the perfect book for anyone who wants to recreate the rich flavours and delicious dishes of Spain's greatest culinary tradition. Small food is enjoying a renaissance, perhaps because it is ideal for entertaining. It is possible to produce a whole range of different dishes to cater for a number of tastes, all with the minimum of fuss. It is also great food for sharing, to be eaten in the company of friends, with a glass of wine. The origin of the word comes from tapar, meaning to cover, apparently referring to slices of bread or cheese that were used to cover glasses. Now a thriving tradition, the range of tapas dishes has extended to include more substantial snacks, from albondigas (meatballs) to the classic tortilla espa?ola to the famous patatas bravas. Certain ingredients are essential for creating tapas: plump stuffed olives, marinated anchovies, handfuls of fresh parsley and, of course, smoked pimenton (paprika) are all storecupboard essentials. The tapas in this book cover a range of flavours and Spanish food lovers will find all the classics here, as well as some more unusual dishes. The recipes are divided into the following chapters: Cocktail Sticks, Skewers, Tostas and Tarteletas, showing that there are many different ways of serving tapas dishes. Beautifully photographed and designed throughout, this is the perfect book for anyone interested in authentic Spanish tapas.
