Outstanding Appetizers

Posted on

Appetizers give guests their first impression of your party – and we all know you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression. This year, a number of trends have emerged in the way of first courses, so here are a few for you to snack on.

  1. Poke/Ceviche
    Fresh, raw fish is back on the menu – this time not inside a sushi roll! Poke is an Hawaiian raw fish salad, and Ceviche is Latin American fresh fish cured in citrus juices.

  1. Jerky
    Gourmet jerky exists, and it’s definitely not your gas-station-brand road trip chew. Served by itself, or in recipes like this one here, jerky can certainly spice up your next event.

  1. Charcuterie
    Make way for a wooden board served with preserved meats, bread, nuts, cheese and more. A charcuterie can come in many ways, shapes and forms – all with meat as the vital ingredient.

  1. House-made Dips
    Whether you’re dipping pretzels, chips or crackers, making your own dips will transform a simple platter into a taste sensation. Be creative with salsa, hummus, sweet dips and international fusions.

  1. Baked Brie
    There is a huge variety of ways to bake a wheel of brie, ranging from pastry-wrapped to covered in sweet fruit preserves. Serve with apple slices, crusty bread or crackers.
