Revel in good company while snacking like a Spaniard.
Create a ritual of gathering your tribe for wonderful conversations over a shared meal. Small portions like "Tapas" are easy to prepare and share. Use your classic recipes, or enjoy some delicious leftovers for a waste-free evening. Bring everyone closer together with #IKEAEverydayRituals.
An informal tapas meal sets the right mood to relax and enjoy your time with your friends. Small portions like tapas allow you to try and discuss more dishes, and conversation over a shared meal brings everyone closer together.
- Cook or buy some tapas – or invite your guests to each bring a tapa. Bread is essential!
- Drinks are a must – wine, beer or non-alcoholic drinks are all good.
- Serve the dishes in small portions on a casually-set table. Small bowls and serving plates like IKEA 365+ and a chopping board like PROPPMÄTT are ideal.
- Skip the plates – just give guests forks, spoons and GRUPPERA napkins. Let them stand around the table and enjoy the conversation.
