White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
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.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Goat Cheese Dip
Think of this as upscale potato skins! Great at a cocktail party with drinks or at a casual get-together while watching the game.
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.
Artichoke Asiago Pinwheels
Try these pretty pinwheels at your next party whether it be dinner, or even brunch!

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.
Hot Chili Chicken Dip
Reminiscent of the classic 70’s hot artichoke dip, this one features our fully cooked grilled chicken. Enough for a crowd.
Cranberry Brie en Croûte
“En croûte” simply means encased in pastry, a delicious way to present a whole Brie on a special occasion.
