The Tapas Story

It is said that King Alfonso X, The Wise, medieval King of Castille became ill and was no longer able to drink his beloved wine as in the manner he like to! His physicians advised him to take small bites of food to accompany his wine. When he recovered he issued a decree obliging all taverns to serve small pieces of food with wine or beer.
In the midst this swirling myth and legend we recommend you deliberate on the historical origins of tapas by sharing a few dishes, and a glass of wine, with friends!

Basque Cuisine

The Basque Country is an ethnic enclave located in the heart of the Pyrenees Mountains, which divide Spain and France from one another.
Inspired by French nouvelle cuisine, the Basque country is nowadays regarded as Spain’s uncontested gourmet stronghold. People of the Basque community turn to the sea for their most prized ingredients - a wide variety of seafood such as eel, sole, hake, cod, and shellfish. They of course rely on their traditional home grown produce: ham, lamb, and ingredients derived from the mountains, such as wild mushrooms, apples, corn and beans. Basque sauces are rich and flavorsome using generous helpings of peppers, herbs and tomatoes.
