Spanish tapas night

APRIL 13 | 6 pm | La Jolla Community Center
Originated in the Andalusia region in Spain, nowadays everyone all over the world loves tapas. These are small bites, originally used to cover a glass of sherry to protect it from fruit flies. And to show travelers what the cook could serve, as menus weren’t very common in the 19th century. Although a tapa can be as simple as a slice of cheese or chorizo, in this class we’ll go a bit more advanced than that. Come and learn to make easy appetizers for every occasion.
