World Tapas Day was celebrated with much Spanish fan fair at the Claridges Hotel, New Delhi recently. The Spanish ambassador and his team were in attendance and gave a brief introduction of how Tapas weren’t just starters but a way of life or a cultural thing in Spain.
Which means that the eating Tapas is actually looking for an excuse to go and socialise with friends. The tourism office of Spain partnered with Sevilla restaurant to bring the World Tapas Day for the second year running.
The chef and his team curated a special menu to cater to Indian and local taste buds. There were authentic Tapas to taste along with “Valencian coca” or deep-fried Calamari which was out of the park taste wise. To help there was authentic Sangria to flush the Tapas down which was made to perfection and helped beat the Delhi summer heat
This event was organised with a partnership with Cox and Kings. They also launched its culinary guidebook “En Route Spain” by Masterchef India winner Shipra Khanna. It also celebrated the diversity of Spanish gastronomy and culture as well as provided a curated itinerary for tourists. So in all the foodie in me wasn’t disappointed.
Highly recommend the non-vegetarian dishes paired with the plenty of Sangrias to have a memorable evening. Ole!
