A cool, rainy day was perfect for enjoying the warm, festive tastes of Spanish tapas at the October Culinary Arts luncheon. Viki Brown was hostess and was joined by 8 members who each prepared a selected recipe. The cookbook used for this event was "Tapas: The Little Plates of Spain" authored by Penelope Casas. Shrimp in green mayonnaise and "Tipsy Goat" cheese were a few of the appetizers followed by lamb meatballs in brandy sauce, cumin-scented carrot salad, potatoes with capers and dill and a variety of other wonderful dishes. The food was accompanied by Spanish red wine, white sangria and fruit lemonade. An apple cream torte rounded out the menu. Each cook shared some tips about the recipe she had prepared and a few members shared personal experiences of enjoying tapas in Spain. Some leftovers were shared to take home to share with some hungry husbands. A fun and festive event. Thanks to all who attended.
