Appetizers and tapas, whims for the senses, is the third book in the series “Amb Gust de Mediterrani” (Taste of the Mediterranean). In this volume we are offering you a recess that is fundamentally aimed at pleasure, thus a guide of proposals so that you can enjoy yourself both in the kitchen and at table. You will find a wide-ranging variety of amusements, “amuse bouche” if you will, ranging from classic deep-rooted bar tapas right through to appetizers adapted to current tastes and contemporary uses. In these pages we invite you to rummage, shake-it-up, pick and choose, although in particular we want to tempt you to get involved with the basic products and cook them so as to turn them into true whims for the taste buds.
