What Kind of food is Tapas

Historically, tapas were complimentary accompaniments to drinks, but over time as the culinary culture of spain evolved and tapas became more elaborate, they often became a meal in their own right.

The word “tapa” translates to “cover” or “lid” in Spanish. The origin of tapas is steeped in legend with many tales over the centuries. One of the most popular stories refers back to the  Andalusian region. Where taverns would cover a glass of wine with a slice of bread to protect the wine from sand and flies. Not only preserving the wine but providing a snack to patrons.
