Tapas on the Patio

I prepared tapas for a small get together on my patio, OK, only my husband and I attended, but it was a practice run for the a real get together I’m planning later this summer. I don’t like trying new recipes out on friends if I haven’t eaten them myself. I was pleased with the results and everything was delicious and something I’d be proud to serve.

Tapas originated in Spain, they were small savory dishes typically served with drinks at a  bar. But they can be canapés or appetizers or a variety of foods served hot or cold. Tapas have evolved into an entire sophisticated cuisine.

I served Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Bruschetta, Mini Filet Mignons and Mini Chocolate Layer Cakes
