Canapés: An essential part of traditional cocktail parties

An essential part of traditional cocktail parties

“Good things come in small packages.” It seems as if the wordings were written for canapés only.

A canapé is a decorative, tempting single-serve, small enough to be held by fingers and consumed in one bite. Traditionally served with cocktails, canapés stimulate the appetite and encourage guests to drink more. That is why; most of the times they are either salted or spicy. The tiny little morsels give you an opportunity to roam around and interact with your mates while they are passed around.  

This scrumptious food may look simple but a lot goes into it. There is basically a base, made from bread or any carbohydrate, a spread, the main dish and the garnish. They are a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.     

Owen Brothers catering service offers an exquisite range of these little stylish munchkins that will leave your guests craving for more. Whether it is a corporate event, traditional cocktail party or canapé catering, you can simply order them. Easy to serve and easy to eat, canapes are equally preferred by hosts as well as guests.
