Canapes are served in small portions, offering bursts of flavour to your palette with just one bite. As part of your wedding or private dinner party, they are a great way to whet the appetite for your guests arrival. Extremely versatile little dishes, they can also be served through the course of an evening at a drinks party, ensuring your guests are being spoilt with many little food sensations. They should provide a wow factor in appearance and I love preparing all my canapes from fresh ingredients, providing you with the best quality and flavours.
