|Organic Tapas: Recipe for a Spanish Style Soire|
|Written by Regina Winkle-Bryan|
The tapa is the most versatile food in Spain. It can be eaten in the morning, in the afternoon for a pick-me-up and at night for a light dinner. Wait a minute though. What is a tapa? Despite the fact that the tapa and tapas bars have become quite trendy in the last few years, not everyone knows what it even is.
Basically, a tapa is a small ration of food or a bite-sized stacked appetizer that can be made of hundreds of ingredients. Depending on what part of Spain you are in, one tapa will be more popular than another. Spain loves to party, and so it makes sense that the Spanish culture has basically invented the perfect party food: the tapa.
There are so many tapas, and most call for traditional Spanish ingredients. However, if you want to throw a bit of Spanish flair into your holiday party this year, these tapas are easy to make both organic and scrumptious.
The Basic: Cheese, Ham, Bread
These ingredients should be fairly easy to find organic in North America. All of the above is produced organically in Spain.
