I LOVE canapes, I am slightly Biased, as working in Catering I am surrounded by them weekly, but I just think they are so underrated.
Canapes can be so dynamic, so yummy and so pretty. At Hey Pesto we do them all, from classic Chicken Skewers to Sweet Canapes for after meal treats. We take inspiration from all over the place, one of my favourites being a twist on the Chinese Chinese classic, Duck Pancakes!
We very often get enquiries for Canape Launch Parties, one being very recently for Roberts Limbrick Ltd in Gloucester, we made over 900 canapes which were very quickly eaten up by the guests. I think they go down so well because there is so much choice, from Vegetarian refreshing bites like our Mozzarella, Tomato & Basil Skewers to bigger meatier mouthfuls like the Jack Daniels Glazed Pork Belly & Spiced Apple.
Weddings & Canapes, Yes or No?
I am team Canapes all the way. My favourite part of a Wedding is the Arrival time! Guests get chance to visit the grounds of the beautiful venue you have found, drink free drinks and nibble on a gorgeous array of Canapes.
Practically thinking, they can also be a great way to keep guests occupied whilst you take thousands of pictures and before the main meal is served. Its always best to think about when guests would have eaten last and the best way to make anyone (not just Men) happy, is through the stomach.
Be Bold, Be You
We design menus to help get your inspiration running, we love to give you ideas and combinations that are tried and tested, however we also love when you have your own ideas. To give you some examples;
– One of our lovely couples getting married this year, got engaged in Italy, so want their canapes to have an Italian theme, love this!
– Another couples are wanting to bring their Cornish roots, and are having mini pasties! – We also had a couple who decided against a conventional pudding and wanted sweet canapes to finish their fantastic meal, went down a storm.
This is YOUR day and, without sounding too much like McDonalds, you should have it your way. Bespoke Menus give you a chance to make your Wedding personal to you both.
So in summary, team canapes all the way!
