100 Great Tapas by Pippa Cuthbert
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Both modern and traditional, tapas is a uniquely Mediterranean phenomenon that has captured the culinary imagination of cultures across the world. Healthy and nutritious, the traditional Spanish way of eating combines the flavours of the distinct regions of Spain and the rest of the Mediterranean with increasingly exotic influences, from neighbouring Africa and Europe, including Greece, Turkey and France as well as Tunisia. "100 Great Tapas" includes fish and vegetable dishes, along with meat, couscous, lentils and spiced dips, each perfectly complementing each other. With the emphasis on light, colourful and flavourful dishes, served in succession, tapas is both a healthy and a sociable way to dine, perfect for those long, summer evenings, or drawn out family occasions spent at home. Best served with lashings of wine or chilled Spanish sherry, tapas is the perfect food to serve for guests, ideally suited for quick, delicious al fresco or after work dining, and can be prepared as it is eaten - between conversations - most of the dishes being easy to prepare and cook. They can be served as main courses or appetizers with a rich variety of intense flavours and textures. With easy-to-follow instructions and clear, practical photographs, "100 Great Tapas" shows you how to make traditional and contemporary Spanish appetisers for the home, or for your own bar or establishment.
