Croquetas de Jamón y Huevo
Our recent dining habit seems to be to eat tapas when we go out for dinner - to Spanish on 4 - managed very ably by Vaughan Parkes. Saturday was one such occasion. We went to the opening of an envelope, which although pretty, and which did not disappoint as far as impressive products, fell rather short on wine and food and other important things one would normally associate with such an event. We arrived at 7 pm, and were sorry to discover that the owner was absent owing to illness, the shop designer was no where to be seen, and the white wine had run out. We swiftly returned to our own bar for further fortification, and thence to the tapas bar aforementioned.
Tapas does seem to me to be a very sensible way to drink and eat. It appears King Alfonso X of Castille thought this too.
