Tip: Offer only enough food to take the edge off and absorb some of the alcohol from the pre-dinner cocktails but not so much that your guests are full by the time they sit down to the main meal.

Bruschetta:  From the Italian word ‘bruscare’ meaning ‘to roast over coals’. The thin slices of this traditional garlic bread are made by rubbing slices of toasted bread with garlic cloves, then drizzling the bread with extra-virgin olive oil. They may be topped with a savory topping such as cheese, vegetables, meat or seafood.

Canape:  A canape is a type of hors d’oeuvre, or small, single-bite food, that is traditionally made with a base of a small piece of bread with some sort of topping.

Crostini:  The Italian word means little toasts. The thin slices of bread are toasted, drizzles with olive oil, and served warm. They may be topped with a savory, finely diced mixture such as cheese, vegetables, meat or seafood.
