Description: In Spain, one simply never drinks without nibbling -- a simple plate of olives, chorizo sausage with a loaf of bread, or maybe a feast that includes Spanish omelettes, shrimp with garlic. and stuffed tomatoes -- in other words, tapas. Tapas are tiny appetizers -- as diverse as they are delicious -- that can be eaten in a bite or sometimes three. 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.
