It may look like an ordinary wood coaster but turn it over and not only does it fit perfectly on the top of your wine glass, it’s scooped out to make a plate for hors d’oeuvres!(Tapas) hence the name “TAPAS” plate&coaster.
We chose our favourite wood pieces, with the most figure and character, so each one is a piece of art by itself. Some have a blend of two wood species and some will remind you of an aged wine or whiskey barrel, it’s because of our (secret) rustic oak natural organic finish.

Here’s a brief history on the Tapas from Spain From Wikipedia:Tapas (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈtapas]) are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine. They may be cold (such as mixed olives and cheese) or hot (such as chopitos, which are battered, fried baby squid). In select bars in Spain, tapas have evolved into an entire, and sometimes sophisticated, cuisine. In Spain, patrons of tapas can order many different tapas and combine them to make a full meal. In some Central American countries, such snacks are known as bocas. In Mexico, similar dishes are called “botanas.” The serving of tapas is designed to encourage conversation, because people are not so focused upon eating an entire meal that is set before them. Also, in some countries it is customary for diners to stand and move about while eating tapas.
