Unique Tapas Party Menus For All Occasions

Tapas is a snack or appetiser generally served with a drink, a tradition which originated in Spain. Ironically, it was first introduced in the simple form of a chunk of bread, which was placed over a glass to keep flies out — making it an ideal custom for Australians! While tapas has become more elaborate since it’s early origins, often comprising of a wide array of hot and cold dishes, you can make your tapas feast as simple or complex as you like. Hosting a themed tapas party is a great way to treat your friends or family, whether you’re celebrating a special event, occasion, or even just a shared love of food!
