Eat when you drink, drink when you eat!

Maria, does ‘Tapas’ actually mean anything?

Of course! Tapa! It means to cover – a cover of bread or cheese over your glass of wine to stop the fruit flies getting in. Today we call it Tapear – going from bar to bar having a tapas in each one with a beer or a glass of wine and always with good friends. In Spain our motto is: Eat when you drink, drink when you eat!









....al Vino



In Northern Spain, chorizo is cooked in cider, but me, I like it with red wine!

Chorizo al Vino

550g Chorizo sausage

350ml Dry red wine

1 bay leaf


  • Slice the sausage add to a frying pan with the wine and the bay leaf.

  • Cook over a low heat for 10-15 mins, making sure the wine has reduced slightly.

  • Serve with chunks of bread to mop up the juices!
