Tapas cookery course
We have just returned from an 18 night holiday around the Balearic Islands off the coast of mainland Spain and yet again we were blown away by the quality of the food produce and just how good eating out on a budget can be. We fell in love with the Spanish tradition of a relaxed 2 hour lunch on a Menu Del Dia followed by an evening visit to a local tapas bar and dining out on their array of stunning Pinchos. For those not in the know a Pinchos or known locally where we were as Pintxos are the ultimate open sandwich available in a plethora of colours and flavour combinations. These combine elegantly with a glass or two of the inexpensive but surprisingly good local wines. The essence of Spanish cookery just like any good food is to take quality ingredients and then to understand how you combine these flavours to produce interesting and mouth watering flavour combinations. The essence of good tapas.
