Tapas and Sangria (SOLD OUT)

July 22, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The word tapa, meaning cover or lid, is thought to have originally referred to the complimentary plate of appetizers that many tascas (a frequented bar) would place on top of one’s wine glass – like a “cover.”  Anything, however, served in small portions can be considered a tapa.

This specialty class offered by Classic Cooking Academy will introduce you to six classic Spanish tapas using fresh meat and fish, vegetables and cheeses – all of which will combine to deliver unmistakable flavors of the Mediterranean.  While learning to prepare these small plates and dining buffet style with fellow attendees, quench your thirst with refreshing and colorful homemade white and red sangria (or beer, if that’s preferred).
