Arte de Cozina – tapas bar, restaurant and hotel in Antequera

I recently enjoyed a tapas lunch in Antequera, at the Arte de Cozina tapas bar and restaurant. The chef is Charo Carmona, a member of GastroArte. Charo Carmona has become recognised as one of Andalucía’s notable chefs and she specialises in using traditional recipes that showcase the best of northern Malaga’s produce and the rich culinary heritage of Antequera and beyond.

Below I feature some of the plates, captured on my iphone. I say mre about this place in my post on Archidona and Antequera.

This is a selection of ‘porra Antequerana’ – traditional tapa that are like a cold gazpacho soup but made with more bread to make them thicker. Here the selection includes a classic tomato, an ajoblanco garlic tapa and also a more contemporary style porra with orange.
