Food writer Helen Cauley talks tapas and small plates.

– The holidays are officially long-gone, and many of us are making every effort to cut back on holiday-sized meals, too. Hence the following conversation with food-writer Helen Cauley, about “small plates”?a popular way that many restaurants in Atlanta and beyond are serving up a variety of smaller portions, rather than one big entree. The concept of small plates sprang from the Spanish tradition of tapas. Here, host John Lemley and Helen discuss both?along with guest star Hector Santiago of Pura Vida. WABE's Kate Sweeney produced this story.

Small plates are available in a multitude of metro restaurants right now. Here are a few mentioned in this story:
