Where did Tapas come from?

Tapas comes from the word Tapa “lid”. Andalucian innkeepers would cover the customers wine glass with dried bread to keep out the flies, they then came up with the idea of balancing a morsel of something tasty on top of the bread slice. A few cubes of cheese or ham for their customers to nibble on; and so the Spanish institution was born.  

Welcome to world of Tapas.

Tapas gives a true feast for the senses that brings a little Spanish sunshine to a cloudy day.
