Essential at parties, or instead of a starter at an informal gathering, or to serve with drinks... these recipes will soon win a place in your regular repertoire as they're easy and irresistible!
Anchovies, mi-cuit tomatoes, olives, oregano: all strong flavours, but combine them in a processor and you end up with this lovely pate-like result. Spread it on to toasted bread for a type of bruschetta - useful as nibbles at a party.
A great way to use up leftover ready-rolled puff pastry, these moreish cheese straws are made in minutes and will go down a storm at a drinks party!
Easy to make, these wonderful savoury scones will vanish in seconds! Although it may sound unusual to add Roquefort, potato and sage to scones, it actually works really well.
Essentially these are plain biscuits, given the star treatment with icing, silver balls and anything else you care to add! Hang them on the tree or wrap them in Cellophane to give as gifts (a great way to keep children busy too!)
These stunning little canapes are heaven on a plate! Cold Yorkshire pudding may not sound that alluring but add rare roast beef and you have the most brilliant combination. A party must!
When the heat is on, you either don't feel like cooking or even eating a great deal. This recipe fits the bill perfectly and would also be ideal at a drinks party or as a nibble before dinner.
A flavour of Christmas here - a chocolate log with a wonderful filling of chocolate mousse and prunes in Armagnac. It would also make the most impressive dessert - minus the holly! - at any time of the year.
Marinate tomatoes in vodka, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce for a couple of days and you'll have a canape that's an explosion of flavours!
OK, this isn't the healthiest dessert on record, but we all deserve a no-holds-barred bit of indulgence now and then. Anyone who loves chocolate will thrill to this wonderful baked cheesecake. To avoid it cracking, allow to cool in the oven.
Light and lovely, this chocolate chestnut log would make a great centrepiece at a Christmas party.
