Food First — A Simple, but Oh-So-Stylish Spread
No one expects a meal at a casual spring party. Rather, they expect to be treated to some exquisite evening snacks composed of unique couplings or reliably refined ingredients. Get ready to take the deviled ham and stuffed celery, the chicken livers and onion dip to a whole nouveau level!
Antipasti & Charcuterie
Move over veggie tray with ranch dressing. Our Antipasti Bar and Charcuterie are rife with imported specialties like stuffed olives and roasted red peppers, cured prosciutto and soppressata. Served with shavings of fine imported aged Provolone and crostini, it’s really hard to fail.
Add to that some other insanely easy pick-up-and-party possibilities like our Market District roasted red pepper hummus served with light, crispy bread sticks or pita, our Market District Brie with fig almond spread, our new gourmet heat & eat frozen appetizers (see page 4), and suddenly your party is elevated to a staggeringly enjoyable height with less-than-a-little cooking and plenty of aplomb.
These simple finger foods have their history in prohibition, when speakeasies served small bites to patrons to help limit inebriation and help protect the secrecy of their locations. Traditionally containing three parts: a base such as toast or a cracker, the main element and a garnish or sauce on top, they were easy to carry in one hand with a drink in the other — and still are!
