Whole Wheat Scones
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.
Cheese & Bacon Pizza
Cheese and bacon are always popular pizza toppings, and sure to please any fussy eaters you may have in your family!
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.
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 Crostini
Savoury tapenade makes a delicious topping for goat cheese toasts. Great to serve with drinks at a cocktail party.
The Cheese Course
North Americans often think of cheese as the pre-dinner appetizer, but for a very European ending to the meal, serve instead of dessert.
Cranberry Brie en Croûte
“En croûte” simply means encased in pastry, a delicious way to present a whole Brie on a special occasion.
Instead of the usual ground meat, this easy family supper features our fully cooked tender pork roast with its delicious gravy.
This gussied-up version of the traditional ham and cheese Croque Monsieur makes a great snack or lunch.
