CANAPES IN LONDON – THE BEST FINGER FOODS FOR PARTIES

 

Imagine a scenario where you’re hosting a sleek, reception for your event in London. Every one of your guests has turned out in their best clothes and are looking elegant and stylish. So, would you just stick to cocktails and call it a wrap? No, because as host, you cannot let your guests leave the party hungry. Also, due to time or space constraints, you can’t squeeze in a formal sit-down meal either. So, what do you do? Look for canapes in London of course!

You serve them, canapés of course

It’s often said, “Good Things come in Small Packages”. And, canapés are no exception to this adage. They are exquisite culinary creations that not only look good but pack a punch when it comes to taste. Thus, the ever-increasing popularity of canapés in London corporate events and other private parties requires no explanations.

Enter Canapés – The most preferred finger food at parties in London

Canapés (pronounced as “can-a-PAYS”) are small finger foods that are usually served before dinner often accompanied with cocktails. It’s a type of hors d’oeuvre and is a two-bite food whose base is either a small bread or cracker with a topping of savoury or sweet ingredients.

Modern canapés use a kind of pancake called as blini or a pastry shell as the base. Even chefs make use of fluted cutters to cut round or shaped slices of plain white bread that serve as the base. At times, you can also find small baguettes as the base of the canapé. You can mix it up and serve different types of canapés and provide your guests with a broad range of choices.

Why are Canapés immensely popular at private parties?

There are various factors that contribute to the popularity of Canapés. Let’s have a short look at some of the notable factors:

Easy to Eat

No one likes to mess their favourite cocktail dress. Canapés are easy to bite into, non-messy and above all don’t leave you with sticky fingers. You can have waiters serving them on trays to your guests.

Varied Selection of Flavours

No one likes to eat the same thing over and over again at a party. With Canapés, you get to experiment with a vast range of flavours. The topping can be sweet, savoury, hot or cold. You can choose from meat, fish, cheese, caviar, steak, lobster, prosciutto ham and shrimp. The more luxurious the topping, the deeper are the flavours.

Apart from the topping, each canapé is finished with a garnish placed on top of the topping. By garnish, we don’t mean something that looks beautiful like a sprig of parsley but something that adds an extra dimension to the dish.

Very often, a garnish is what sets a canapé apart and makes it tantalising. It’s usually small like minced herbs that lend an earthy smell, slivered red or yellow peppers that add a dash of colour or minced onions for that extra crunch.

With so many permutations and combinations, you can serve a wide variety of flavours and textures all with a single dish.

Serve Canapés and Impress your Guests

Happy tummies make people happy. Serve a broad range of canapés to your guests, improve the mood of your event and, feel proud of hosting a successful party.

Keep your guests happy with the mouthwatering canapes

Food is an important part of a party, as this is how you encourage your guests to relax and unwind. Finger food, and canapés, in particular, are a great form of food to serve as they taste fantastic and look just as great too. This is sure to impress your guests and keep them content throughout the event.

When arranging a large party or social event, there is a lot to organise. This can make it a particularly stressful and daunting prospect, especially if you have little to no experience in hosting such large events. The location, guest list, decorations, music, guest list, theme, dress code, drinks and food are just a few of the aspects that need arranging. One key element which is sometimes overlooked is food. If you do not supply your guests with a range of delicious food, then they will struggle to relax and feel content, which could result in most people leaving early. However, if you have a large spread of food it will help people to get into the mood, feel content and it can even work as a fantastic conversation starter and get people to mingle.

This way, you can get a huge range of delicious and beautifully presented canapés delivered to the location with plenty of time to spare.

I’m Crazy for a chocolate Eclair !!

Chocolate éclairs are among the world’s most famous pastries and they are certainly one of my  great Dessert .

But must of the pastry shop in england and US  sell then with Chantilly cream and chocolate fondant on the top .

This is why I like you to discover the French version of this golden cake …

Some best Patisserie in France  Like Fauchon, Lenotre bake some fantastic selection,( Rose, caramel, pistachio, coffee, vanilla, chocolate )

As a chef I start do do some different Flavours with raspberry, lemon,  strawberry and this eclair are working so well  with my cocktail party.

For me a eclair need to be Classic and Fashion at the same time ( the Summer eclair …. )

Eclairs are set to become the new cupcake, according to  London retailers.

Selfridges said sales are up nearly a quarter compared with this time last year, and its afternoon tea venue — Dolly’s — is set to sell 12 new varieties. M&S and Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen have also launched flavoured éclairs, with the latter offering rhubarb and custard.

Experts put the resurgence of the choux pastry treat down to the popularity of afternoon tea and the revival of home baking brought about by TV’s The Great British Bake Off. M&S said: “We think this will be the year of the éclair … it seems their popularity will soon be challenging the mighty cupcake.”

The chocolate éclair has long been a staple in UK patisseries, but new flavours are key to the boom. Selfridges’ executive chef, Mark Taylor, said: “On a recent trip to Paris, the range of flavours was vast — pistachio, mint, violet cream.”
