You only know tapas as appetizers that are usually served in tapas bars to drink? Nothing special, just Spanish finger food? You’d be surprised. Tapas are as versatile as the different cuisines of the regions. And as varied as the number of sources that tell the tale of their origin.
One source states that tapas originated in Andalusia. The reason: People there have always enjoyed eating outdoors, using a slice of bread like a small lid – Spanish: "tapa" - placed on the wine glass to protect the precious drink from annoying flies. Also serving as the "lid" were some ham, sausage or cheese. Over the years, the lid would become more varied and sophisticated.
