Wines from Rioja and the Basque Culinary Center, Faculty of Gastronomic Science, will explore the origins of tapas, and key elements in recreating the Spanish tapas experience worldwide. We will explore how the tapas trend exploded onto the global scene, and how restaurateurs and wine professionals can capitalise on this success in their own outlets. The presentation will cover the key elements of a tapas bar, the role of wine, and different approaches to tapas on a global level. Two Michelin star Spanish chef Marcos Moran will share his experience gained in Spain and at his London venue, as well as his passion for tapas and wine.
