    Spanish food is a cuisine that has its roots within the country of Spain. Many people, of Spanish and non-Spanish decent, enjoy this cuisine in the form of authentic restaurants, international markets and cooking their own recipes. Of course, as this style of food was introduced into the United States, there were some adaptations on traditional dishes, catering to a wider audience. However, authentic restaurants, utilize old family recipes and still maintain some basic elements that tend to define Spanish cooking. These elements include the use of seafood, pork, paella and beans. Some other features, especially when mixed with the Latino or Hispanic cuisines, are tortillas, cheeses and maiz. Many Spanish restaurants may choose to focus on one aspect of the cuisine, such as serving tapas. Tapas can be anything from a plate of appetizers, to a meal that is made up of several snack courses. In fact, tapas comprise the entire dinner menu in many gourmet Spanish restaurants. Spanish dishes and food were first introduced into the Americas through the conquistadors, who began exploring the new continent as far back as 1492. As culture developed within the United States and Latin America, we retained heavy roots with Spain's food. From desserts to drinks, many dishes are infused with Spanish flavors and spices.
