    Canapés complete any party, giving your guests something to nibble on while they catch up over a glass of wine. Plus, our stunning (yet secretly very easy) canapé recipes will leave them in no doubt of your capabilities in the kitchen. If you’re looking for interesting ways to delight guests’ palates, you’ve come to the right place.

    Canapés are a really simple, lovely way to get people talking at your party, and because they’re so easy to eat and are usually small nibbles, they’re the perfect food to socialise over. They allow people to mingle and have a good time without tying them down to one spot. Our canapé recipes are all really easy to make and make the ideal bite sized treat.

    Our favourite canapé recipes

    Whether you’re looking for savoury canapés like out mini crostinis made with figs and black olive tapande or something sweeter, like chocolate truffles or mini éclairs, we’ve got something to suit any soiree.

    If you’re serving canapés with an aperitif pre-dinner, then try to stick to some of the lighter options like our clever little soup shots (think bloody Mary flavours) or marinated king prawns. However, if you’re having a drinks reception, with no sit down meal, then go all out on the canapés and serve up plenty of potato and bread based bite-sized treats as well as some pudding options, too. The cheese fondue with crispy new potatoes in the picture above are a perfect if you fancy a few hot bites.

    We have plenty more crostini, tartlet and bruschetta ideas that are meat-free so you can pick whatever tickles your fancy. But for a more meaty option, try our pork and prawn dim sum. They are quite the treat!

    So, what are you waiting for? Try our exciting and unique flavour combinations and you’ll be wowing friends and family in no time with some original and delicious little treats.
