Experiencing TAPAS at Westlake

By Holly Trent and Erina Brown

In Year 11 Spanish we are learning all about the food in Spanish and Latin American culture.

As part of this, during Week 2, our class was lucky enough to enjoy some of this culture as we were served tapas made by our teacher, Señora Furtado. Tapas are a wellknown dish that are made particularly in Spain. They are little plates of food served at bars to have with drinks and are very delicious!

For our tapas we had little pieces of bread topped with olive oil, a choice of meats, such as chorizo and jamón (Spanish ham), and vegetables. As we were eating we learned all about the names of the food and their significance to Spanish culture. Overall it was incredible to have the opportunity to eat delicious food in this hands-on learning experience!
