Tapas were initially designed as an after-work drinking snack that has evolved into a social event worthy of the finest restaurants.  We'll raid the folk school garden and make a few simple and delicious dishes to share. See how easy it is to create a tapas meal at home.  We'll prepare dishes like patatas bravas, pan tomate, gazpacho, shrimp with garlic, and more, depending on what's available in the garden.
