What type of food is tapas? The Spanish word tapa means ‘lid’ and comes from the verb tapear, meaning ‘to cover’. Many people say that the custom of tapas came about when bar keepers began covering their customers’ drinks with a slice of bread, ham or cheese to stop flies and dust from entering. The Spanish dictionary defines a tapa as ‘a small portion of any food served to accompany a drink’ and traditionally they have become small savory dishes, snacks or appetizers of Spanish cuisine also called ‘Horderves’ which is a French word that literally means “outside the work”; that is, “not part of the ordinary set of courses in a meal”. In practice, it is a dish which stands on its own as a snack or supports the main course. They usually come in four varieties: 1) pinchos (on a cocktail stick), 2) cheese and charcuterie platters, 3) cold tapas, and 4) hot tapas, some of which are now often adapted to provide for a full meal.
