The “small plates” trend currently in vogue in so many New York City hot spots has its deep roots in the lively taverns of Spain, where tapas are enjoyed with wine and friends. Bring this social and savory style of eating to your own table. After this course, you’ll have the know-how to assemble impromptu cocktail “bites” or combine several dishes into a delectable, eclectic meal. Either way, these small plates are a great way to bring big flavors, friends and family together.


You’ll prepare soup, vegetable, meat and seafood recipes for such tapas favorites as tortilla española (potato omelet) and almendras fritas (savory sautéed almonds). You’ll polish your culinary skills and acquire a few cooking methods traditional to the Spanish kitchen, using the cazuela (earthenware casserole) and plancha (griddle) to conjure authentic dishes.
