The Art of Eating Standing Up

Tapas is more than a type of food in Spain - it's a lifestyle. With tapas comes etiquette and protocol, but "no te preocupes" - don't worry. In this episode, Annie explores the range of tapas enjoyed in Spain and tells viewers everything they need to know about the art of eating standing up. Annie starts with a tapas tour in Sevilla, where these small plates were born and there are now more than 4000 tapas bars; enjoys the pre-dinner ritual of a txikiteo tapas bar crawl through the medieval cobblestone streets of San Sebastian; leaves the hustle and bustle of Spain's cities behind to enjoy simple, traditional tapas in Logrono, a charming town in Spain's Rioja region; and visits TapaÇ24, a hip, cavernous bar in Barcelona's L'Eixample district, where rock star chef Carles Abellan serves up an avant-garde twist on tapas.
