Small dishes for the tapas table
Apr, 2019

A classic tapas table consists of many small dishes – it is perfect for casual and cosy gatherings. Here at Nicolas Vahé, we have lots of delicacies you can place directly on the table or make small, tasty tapas dishes in advance. Get inspired by some of our easy dishes that are made with just a few ingredients.

Start by cutting small balls of melon using a melon baller. If you don’t have a melon baller, cut the melon into small cubes.
