The History of Tapas

The word "tapas" is derived from the Spanish verb tapar, "to cover".

The original tapas were the slices of bread or meat which sherry drinkers

in Andalusian taverns used to cover their glasses between sips.

This was a practical measure meant to prevent fruit flies from hovering

over the sweet sherry. The meat used to cover the sherry was normally

ham or chorizo, which are both very salty and activate thirst.

Because of this, bartenders and restaurant owners began creating

a variety of snacks to serve with sherry, thus increasing their alcohol sales.

The tapas eventually became as important as the sherry.

We have taken inspiration from different Mediterranean countries

to bring you our unique selection of tapas.
