Asparagus, Avocado & Chèvre Tea Sandwiches: Add a lovely tanginess to your tea sandwiches with a creamy, fresh goat cheese spread that complements the asparagus and avocado.
Brie & Apple Tea Sandwiches: Pickled onions and rye bread offer delicious contrast to the sweetness of the apple and creaminess of the brie in this simple sandwich.
House-Smoked Gravlax Crostini: These delicious appetizers star our recipe for House-Smoked Gravlax Salmon, but you can also use your favorite pre-smoked salmon.
Chocolate Orange Liqueur Mousse: Garnished with homemade candied orange slices, this beautiful, boozy mousse tastes just as good as it looks.
For a few extra snacks, set the table with charcuterie from our kitchen like Prosciutto di Parma, Soppressata, Hot Coppa, Italian Dry Salami and many more. Then add a little sweetness with an array of fresh fruits like mango, pineapple, blueberries and strawberries. Slice the larger fruits for easy snacking, and serve with our kitchen’s homemade Honey Yogurt Dip for a delicious finishing touch.
