Canapés recipes

They say the best things come in small packages, and it’s no exception when it comes to these flavour-packed, bite-sized morsels that are perfect for a party. Dinner and snack classics can be easily transformed into one-bite wonders – with canapés, presentation and bold flavour is everything. Serve your favourite soups as delightful shooters, or invest in a selection of mini skewers and serving spoons for easy eating on-the-go. Spices and distinctive garnishes will make your canapés pop; try dustings of vibrant paprika or a curl of citrus zest. And remember, if it isn’t easily eaten with your fingers, it probably shouldn’t be a canapé.
