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!
