This year, I’ve decided to make it less stressful, and get over having to make appetizers from scratch. The simplest things can be spectacular looking and delicious. Choose great products , and a gorgeous serving platter/dish, and voilà, you’re golden.
We have really good lettuce in the greenhouse, so I used it, but if I hadn’t, I would have used butter lettuce. Then, I got some fabulous cold smoked salmon, and an incredible chunk of cranberry Stilton cheese (both from Sam’s). To bring it all together, I served it on a gorgeous piece from Owl Creek Ceramics – amazing and impressive. And a glass of proseco with a splash of cranberry juice made it even better!
So, this holiday season, give yourself a break. Get a wedge of great cheese (or cube it), some nuts, cut up veggies, cubed ham or summer sausage, olives, baby pickles – all the best products you love, and can afford, and make them look scrumptious.
