Why these 3 Finger Foods are Better than a Buffet

December 12, 2017

Have you ever tried to eat standing up at a buffet-style party?  Attempting to juggle the utensils, a plate full of food, and drinks while talking to guests takes one more set of hands than we all have.


Inevitably, we leave our drink somewhere we don't remember, accidentally drop our plate of food, or disengage in conversation while we try to eat quickly to get rid of our plate.


Unless you have enough seating and table space for plates to be placed, then a better alternative is an appetizer and cocktail party . 


Finger foods that are scrumptious bites of flavors accompanied by a cocktail or glass of wine are the perfect complement to lingering conversation.  

These 3 appetizers will impress even your foodie guests.  And work well together. 


Serve alongside seasonal veggies and dip, and a meat and cheese board, and you are all set.


 Congratulations! You have created a party feast without the hassle of finding additional seating, tables or chafing dishes.

Potato and Guanciale Flatbread


Flatbreads are excellent vessels for holding all kinds of amazing ingredients.  Try to combine favorites like Pear and Gorgonzola or Mushrooms and Gruyere.   Use your imagination and incorporate ingredients you have on hand.


Smoked Trout Crostini with Radishes and Dill Cream


Crostini’s are another wonderful vessel for holding all kinds of other easy to prepare and spectacular morsels.  This smoked trout version will pair exceptionally well with a crisp white wine.
