What tapas are made of?
Tapas are made of practically anything: cured meats, cooked meats, vegetables, cheeses, seafood, olives, etc. Depending on what you want, you can choose some jamón ibérico, chorizo, cheese or maybe a really good and crispy deep fried fish, cooked chunk of tuna or even meatballs. There is no limit for tapas!
Tapas are normally paired with white or red wines (depending on whether they are meat, fish or vegetables) and also with very cold beer. Tapas are a way to share a meal with family and friends and enjoy a quick drink before (or during) lunch or dinner. In addition, tapas allow you to enjoy different flavors and textures in the same meal.
Tapas are very important in Spanish social life. They use even the verb tapear, which basically means to go out and eat diferent tapas in different places!
