About us

We’re glad you want to know more about Tips and Tapas.

The first thing we want to point out is that we are not professional chefs by any stretch of the imagination. We just like cooking and eating, and that’s why we decided to start this blog and share all we know about Spanish food. Because we love travelling and learning as much as possible about the food and culture of the places we’re visiting, we know that there are a lot of people just like us.

That’s why we encourage you to discover restaurants and bars all over Spain. This includes not only the ones in the most “touristy” spots, but also places where English is not widely spoken. And that’s why we have included some tips and quick guides that (we hope) will help you to explore the country and its food. Remember: Spain is not only about Sangría, Paella and tapas. You can try so many other dishes that are traditional to each region. We have included some of them in our recipes section.

About our recipes: we’ve tried to simplify them as much as possible, and in some cases, they are not exactly as they are typically prepared in Spain. The reason for this is that it may be difficult and expensive to find some of the ingredients we would normally use if you live abroad. But of course, we would love to hear your thoughts and/or suggestions anytime.

Thanks a lot for visiting Tips and Tapas!
