    French Tart's Note:

    A deliciously simple and yet very tasty Spanish Tapas dish. The beauty of this recipe is that is steeps in the wine for 24 hours - making it very easy to plan ahead. Serve in an an attractive earthenware dish and sprinkle with chopped flat leaf parsley. I like to skewer these with toothpicks, to make it easier and less messy to eat! Do try to use very high quality Spanish Chorizo sausage - the cheaper types do not taste nearly as good, and contain a very high fat content.

      My friend who is a pretty good cook made this for a party, he isn't into Zaar, so I suggested with many suggestions from other Zaarites and then gave it to him. He followed exactly and it was YUMMY. He has an outdoor wood grill which was perfect since most of his meals he cooks that ways, so it was ideal. And he got the good chorizo too. It was worth it. We just reheated for a few minutes in the same dishes on the grill tinight just to warm up and then sliced for all the guests. Very very nice. Absolutely not a bite left which is always a good sign.
