Appetizing Appetizers

Whether you are hosting a cocktail party, family gathering or business event – Consider a menu of served appetizers.

Menus can be designed for small bites or full meals. One of the benefits of an appetizer party is getting to sample different tastes. Passed canapés create a festive atmosphere and satisfy everyone. It’s a great way for your guests to mingle and socialize.  Passed appetizers are a feast for the eyes and are presented on artfully decorated displays.

Depending on your event, the menu can be formal or casual. Choose a wide variety of meat, vegetables, and fish canapés. A few appetizers from around the globe will add exotic flavors and panache.

Create a customized menu that will excite and impress your guests. Here is a menu that we recently prepared for a gathering of 75 guests at an Open House.
