Simple Tapas

There are countless variations of tapas, or pinchos as they are known in the Basque country. The counters of tapas bars all around Spain groan with choice. Some top fresh bread with a myriad of different ingredients, others simply slice jamón onto a plate or skewer collections of different pickles or seafood to create different combinations. The most famous of these is the ‘Gilda’ – a skewer of an anchovy, a guindilla pepper and a stuffed green olive – so called because it is as spicy as Rita Hayworth in her classic 1946 movie of the same name.
