When you’re trying to eat healthy, hors d’oeuvre- often high fat, salty affairs- are a challenge. You can enjoy our leek-stuffed mushrooms without blowing your healthy eating goals. Serve this elegant bite-sized nibble at your next party.
Leek-Stuffed Mushroom Caps
Goat Brie Pastry Bites
Our ham is delicately flavoured with rosemary and pairs beautifully with Brie and apple. You could use pear, if you prefer.
Puff Pastry Cheese Twists
A delicious snack to serve with cocktails. Don’t worry if some of the toppings fall off while you twist the pastry strips; work over the baking sheet and some will bake back onto the bottoms of the twists.
These are delightful served slightly warm with pre-dinner cocktails. Slice and bake as your dinner guests arrive. And your house will smell great!
Easy Cheesy Soufflé
A fabulous dish to have in your repertoire, soufflé makes a great entertaining dish. All the work is done in advance- you can entertain your guests once it’s in the oven, then bask in the oohs and aahs when it comes out!
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Serrano Ham and Roasted Pear Salad
Serrano ham is a Spanish dry-cured ham, similar to Italian prosciutto but drier and firmer. It has a salty bite, so we’ve used it sparingly here, wrapping it around roasted pears for a delicious play of sweet and salty.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Black Olive and Sundried Tomato Palmier
Short on time? Prepare this impressive and convenient appetizer in advance and bake ten minutes before your guests arrive.
