Are you currently deciding whether to add canapés to your drinks reception? Well …. consider this …

They look amazing, taste fantastic, are a great talking point and, in short, they set the bar high for the day to come.  In our experience a glass of fizz and a beautifully presented canapé creates buzz and builds an air of excitement and anticipation.  Now ….. what was it you were considering and why?

Interestingly, canapé is a type of hors d’œuvre meaning ‘outside the (main) work’, and is a small, prepared and usually decorative food, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite.

Head Chef, Old Down Manor, Chris Wicks comments:

Canapés are one of our specialities. They are the perfect beginning to any celebration: a fruity cocktail or glass of fizz accompanied by tasty little morsels of food, beautifully presented, is the best way to break the ice with family, friends and colleagues.

“A couple of my favourites are Lobster Taco’s  – mini taco’s stuffed with lightly cooked chopped lobster and a spicy tomato salsa or Potato Blini topped with smoked salmon, eel or caviar  … perfection with a glass of champagne or a vodka based cocktail!”
