The tradition of tapas provides a leisurely, companionable way to enjoy a host of different tastes while enjoying the pleasure of lively conversation and good company.
Here, expert chef and world-traveler Richard Tapper offers step-by-step recipes for creating dishes that sample the flavors from the Bay of Biscay to the Mediterranean coast to Spain's interior -- as well as Tapper's own innovations.
