Spanish Tapas

Presented by Ricardo Zaratustra
About the class


FYI – 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/hide the smell of bad wine (gag)/ keep the wind from blowing your drink everywhere.

Nowadays we make and eat 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 menu:



Jamon Iberico, Olives and Spanish White Anchovies

Begin your night nibbling at this with a glass of Rioja while Ricardo takes you through what you’ll be doing to prepare the rest of the menu.


Tortilla Espanola

Gambas al Ajillo Prawns sautéed in garlic

Croquetas with Salted Cod

Pulpo a la gallega Galecian style octopus with paprika

Churros with Chocolate Sauce


To Do List:

  • Wear closed toe shoes (we love your toes where they are),
  • Pull long hair back off your face (“waiter, there’s a hair in my soup”),
  • Inform us of any dietary requirements prior to purchasing your ticket/s. Please also be aware that some requirements and/or allergies cannot be catered to – depending on the class.
  • There are often leftovers at the end of each class so we ask that you bring Tupperware from home to put them in, as we will no longer be handing out plastic containers in our bid to save the environment
