Flamenco Party and Little Spanish Tapas

Flamenco cupcakes.jpg gf.jpgA little while ago I bought a book called The Little Tapas Book.  Reading through I suddenly had an idea.  Why not do a whole blog on Tapas for kids?  Reading through this little book, most of the tapas would get the thumbs down from most children and those that might be okay, unfortunately were breadcrumbed up to the eyeballs.  But on the upside, children love finger food and they love anything that has been skewered too.  So  with a little lateral thinking, you can use this idea to put together a selection of kid friendly tapas.

Luckily a friend recently asked if I would do the food for her daughter's Flamenco party and she liked the idea of doing Spanish Tapas for kids.  We put our heads together and came up with an easy and very colourful menu all of it gluten free.  She has kindly agreed to let me share the photos of the party and the menu with you.Flamenco party table.jpg gf.jpg

The menu:

  • Tortilla Espanola
  •  Pepperami Manchego Cheese sticks
  • Chicken Nuggets with two dips (spicy tomato and spicy mustard)
  • Cheesey Breadsticks
  • Little Baked Potatoes
  • Fresh fruit plates
  • Ole Cupcakes
  • Blackcurrant squash served in goblets with pretty paper umbrellas

I had a moment of doubt en route to the venue, thinking this whole idea had been a terrible mistake.  Most parties offer plates of sandwiches, pizzas, biscuits, crisps, sausages and birthday cake in a little bag to take home. What on earth was I thinking?  Well, I am delighted to tell you that all of the plates were wiped clean and pretty much everything served was eaten with great gusto.Flamenco Balloon Girl.jpg gf.jpg
