When serving appetizers at a cocktail party or before a meal, think outside the box. No need to have a basic platter of cheese on the side table or waiters passing food on silver trays for guests to take with their hands. Instead, make it young, fun and fresh by presenting food in different ways. It’s amazing how a stick or a spoon can take a one-bite treat and make it something extra special. It doesn’t have to be as elaborate as the images shown. A tray with spoons topped with a delicious mousse, wonderful sashimi, or delicious marinated olives lined up on a tray looks elegant and is easy to eat. No matter what or how you serve an appetizer, make sure it’s bite-size. There’s nothing attractive about seeing a guest juggle bite into an appetizer that’s really a small first course!
