Anthony Rose: 'Richard Bigg, owner of Camino, described sherry as ‘the best-value wine on the planet'
Saturday 11 September 2010
On a biting cold night when a thick blanket of snow lay on the ground, I went on a tapas-bar crawl as a guest of the Tortilla Club, a group of Spanish food and wine aficionados. Starting off at Fino, my first surprise was at how many tapas bars there are in London's Charlotte Street area. My next surprise was how much I found myself enjoying sherry with just about everything consumed that night. I enjoy fino and manzanilla as refreshing summery aperitifs, but their warm full-body and appetisingly tangy flavours made them good winter drinks too.

This month, the city of Seville will be in festive swing at its annual gastronomic tapas fair where everyone celebrates by going off on a massive tapeo (a tapas crawl). Spanish tapas have been one of the big success stories of the past few years in the restaurant world and so many cuisines have been influenced by the idea of sharing small plates of delicious little bits and pieces.
