Wow Your Guests with Hot & Cold Canapés from 1762 Catering
In a party or event, you can get away with a few mishaps. But with food, you’re virtually treading on rough waters. Like it or not, food can often make or break a party. This is why planning the menu is not a task that you should give little thought to.
When planning your menu, you might be mulling over the idea of which would be best to serve: hot or cold canapes? If you are preparing a few dishes by yourself, cold food items can offer you ample leeway in food preparation. Some types of food, on the other hand, are best served hot. When it comes to hot and cold canapes, how do you know which of the two to choose to serve to your guests?
Before deciding on that, it is worthwhile to define what a canape is. A canape is a type of appetizer that is typically made with bread or crackers and are then topped off with a dairy-based spread and meat, cheese or veggies. Canapes can either be salty or spicy, complementing the drinks served to the guests. They may be served either hot or cold and are intended to be eaten using one’s fingers.
Hot food items, including some canapes, are perfect during the cooler seasons. The drawback here is if you are preparing these by yourself. Simply put, you will need to cook and serve these to your guests immediately, or else use a food warmer.
Cold canapes can be a refreshing treat during the warmer months. On top of that, they can be prepared ahead, some days prior to the party or event, giving you ample time to focus on other things. However, you will have to make sure that you have enough space in your fridge to store these.
But instead of choosing between the two, you can opt to serve a combination of hot and cold canapes.
