Appetizers

“By some people the meal itself is a long delay between the appetizer and the dessert” - Gertrude Berg

The ideal course for sharing and sampling more adventurous flavors, an appetizer can be a great way of adding a touch of flair to a menu without adding to the amount of time spent in the kitchen.

The ideal appetizer is simple and tasty, served in smaller portions to ensure guests don’t fill up before the main event, while showcasing local favorites or seasonal ingredients. We also love the simplicity of being able to add a new twist to an old classic, taking familiar appetizers to new heights.

Whether you are looking for an evening showstopper to impress your guests, that little something extra to complement your main course, or some finger food to keep the hordes in check, you’ll find it all here.
