RIP, Penelope Casas, who introduced America to tapas, not topless, bars

From the NYT: Spanish food author Penelope Casas dies at 70.

“People thought of Spanish cuisine as spicy, full of rice dishes,” her daughter said. “They had no real sense of what Spanish food was. She would talk about tapas bars, and they would think she was saying ‘topless.’ ”
