Tapas Tasting and Demonstration in Barrington, Illinois

I’ve always wanted to host a tapas dinner party at home, but I have yet to learn how to prepare any of my tapas favorites in my own kitchen. This week, I have found a fun way to figure that out! There’s a tapas and sangria-making demonstration and tasting taking place tomorrow night at the Barrington Home Shoppe right in the Ice House Mall.

Tapas Tasting and Demonstration in Barrington, IllinoisFrom 6-8PM tomorrow night, the Barrington Home Shoppe will transport you to Spain where you will learn how to create your own tapas dinner party. The demonstration will be presented by the experts from Tapas Calpe’ Wine and Cheese Bar in Cary, IL.

Tapas Demonstration at the Barrington Home ShoppeThis culinary specialty dates back to the 12th century, but there are some great tapas twists for today’s tastes. From ham to traditional Spanish omelets, seafood to smoked meats, olives to croquettes, the thing I love most about tapas, aside from the varied flavors, is the experience of sharing a great variety of small food portions among friends.

It makes for a festive, colorful and conversation-starting menu, and I’d love to master a few recipes that would also be great to bring as an appetizers to a friend’s party. The cost to take part in tomorrow night’s tapas tasting is $15, but you can apply that to any purchases, if you decide to pick up a serving piece or two before you head home.  The Barrington Home Shoppe has a great selection of upscale artisan tabletop items, fine gifts, home accents and holiday collectibles.
