It’s that time of year when dedicated home cooks, professional chefs and serious kitchen dabblers dust off their treasured holiday family recipes and head straight for their ovens, stand mixers and stove tops. The holidays are here, so let the cooking, baking, kneading, frosting and glazing begin!
While there are thousands of recipes for delicious holiday hors d’oeuvres, below are the “ingredients” for the ideal holiday appetizer. Remember to give us a call for any party rental equipment, merchandise or furniture you need for your holiday celebration.
Must Travel Well
Choose appetizers that are highly portable and need no special containers to transport. They should stand up to a little jostling and be none the worse for wear. Air-tight Tupperware containers should be all you need to carry the perfect holiday appetizers from your kitchen to the party venue.
The Rule of Five
Holiday cooking is stressful enough. Pass on appetizers with more than five main ingredients or that take more than five easy steps to make.
Appetizers that can be made ahead of time and frozen or kept in your refrigerator without losing any of their taste and appeal get bonus points. It’s hard enough to make sure the turkey is moist and cooked all the way through, your pie crust is flaky and the mashed potatoes are lump-free. Opt for appetizers that can bide their time in your freezer and still look and taste like you made them fresh from scratch just that morning.
Must Look Simply Divine
There’s a reason those little bite-size culinary bits of perfection are called appetizers — they’re supposed to whet your guests’ appetites for the main entrees. In order to do that, appetizers should look almost too good to eat. Choose hors d’oeuvres that appeal to your guests’ eyes as well as to their taste buds.
