This dish falls within the realm of Tapas, small items served at Tapas Bars with wine and beer. It is excellent and sure to delight all such friends as you still have after presenting it. In Spain the balls of a fighting bull killed in the ring are especially prized, but here in California we have to settle for just any old bull.
