I have the feeling that it’s time I revamped my canapés. I’ve been doing the same thing for a few years now and (apart from the fact that sausages and smoked salmon sandwiches will never go out of favour with the wary nibbler) I need new ideas. So I asked El – who attends, and often organises, the sort of Do where these fripperies are served.
I like making canapés. I like eating them too, as long as they are delicious and not all stodge. I know many excellent cooks who find them a fiddly waste of time, but I can lose a happy few hours fiddling and enjoy making them look pretty and taste good.
El has kindly sent me some menus (no recipes of course, but it’s the ideas I want) from various venues that do Dos. Many of the hot nibbles are a bit messy, though.
It just so happens that four of us have birthdays in September…
