Spanish Tapas

Presented by Ricardo Zaratustra
About the class

Join us on Thursday 10th June as we celebrate Spanish cuisine in Newcastle’s foremost Spanish Tapas cooking class at the Essential Ingredient.

Did you know that ‘tapa’ means ‘to cover’?! In its earliest incarnation a ‘tapa’ was given (think slice of cheese or Jamon) to place over your drink to keep the flies out. It could also be to hide the smell of bad wine and to keep the wind from blowing your drink everywhere. Nowadays we make and eat Spanish Tapas because it’s damn delicioso!

We are lucky enough to have the sparklingly fabulouso Ricardo Zaratustra to guide us through this classic Spanish Tapas.
