    Patatas bravas, loved the UK over, but not a dish that is regularly made at home. According to some recent research by Campo Viejo, only 6% of the nation cooks tapas at home. Believe me, this is one of the most simple recipes I have ever created, and so tasty. I reckon everyone should have a go.

    This is very easy to make, it doesn't cost a fortune and most people have a couple of onions, potatoes and eggs spare. It's low on cost and high on taste. It's ideal to eat hot or cold and great to eat with a salad. Please note you will need a deep fat fryer, a frying pan and a dinner plate.

    This easy tapas dish is enjoyed throughout Spain. Mushrooms are cooked to perfection in olive oil and white wine, and flavoured with garlic, red chilli and parsley.

    Unlike most omelettes, a Spanish tortilla is served at room temperature. It is the classic tapas dish, prepared all over Spain.

    Living in Spain I have come across a literal plethora of tapas. This is a light, healthy tapa that goes best with crisp white wines and crusty bread. This recipe is great for experimenting with a variety of different vegetables, spices and vinegars.

    This recipe is from Spain. Sherry or lemon juice is not always used, but either one adds a nice contrast to the richness of the oil and garlic. You can easily substitute squid or scallops for the prawns.
