Served in bars all over Spain, good tapas is all about the perfect marriage of food, drink and conversation. Now, for the first time, "The Book of Tapas" presents a complete guide to this convivial way of eating with over 250 recipes that can be served with drinks in typical Spanish style, or combined to create a feast to share with friends.

The book's authors, Simone and Ines Ortega, are the ultimate authorities on traditional cooking in Spain.
