Appetizers in Spanish cuisine hot or cold have become one of my favourite foods, we only have one Spanish tapas restaurant where I live and I visit it as often as I can.
I love the fact that you can order so many different small dishes to make up your meal.

This has inspired me to start a series of posts on Spanish Tapas food, if you follow this blog you will be notified of each new post.
