I'm in a tapas mood after watching Jamie Oliver's Meals in Minutes today. He made a funky little sticky chorizo dish by rendering chorizo and then adding garlic, honey and vinegar. Gotta make! I'm also going to make some steamed spicy clams to go with it or braise some octopus for an octopus salad. What are some of your favorite tapas?
Tapas, any favorites?
I sincerely like small plates, really of anything.
That way you can taste multiple dishes, take your time, drink some wine, chat, order another plate and before you know it, your stomach has had plenty of time to tell your brain "I've had enough, I'm full now thank you".
I only wish that more places would offer a regular order for folks who want it and then a half or mini plate. I like dessert too, so there's another plus to small plates...

The joyful sharing of life energy in the present
I need to start practicing making ravioli soon. Fresh ravioli are to die for.
Patatas Bravas has always been my favorite even if it is a bit common and boring to some. One of my main go to tapas though is mijillones con vinagre (mussels with vinegar) It is basically steamed chilled mussels with diced onion,green and red bell pepper mixed and scooped into mussel shell with red vine vinagrette. So good on a hot summer day!
