There has been much excitement in the office this week with the arrival of the new canape and shot combos that our fab head chef, James, has been dreaming up over the last few weeks!  They’ve had a great time in the kitchen testing them out and the best ones were previewed at this week’s team meeting, much to our delight!! They look amazing and taste delicious.  We had to sit through most of the meeting, staring at them in the middle of the table before being allowed to have a taste at the end of the meeting.  It was well worth the wait. There are rainbow coloured skittle vodkas, paired with watermelon vodka jellies – they look like a little taste of summer, and on a dreary drizzly day in February, they brought a ray of sunshine into our team meeting!  The vodka shots are served in little welly-shaped shot glasses and the jellies are watermelon-shaped slices.  They are my favourite! The mini Heritage burgers in a mini brioche bun (got to love a burger in a brioche bun), with pickle cucumber and confit of cherry tomato, to be served with a mini JD & coke shot are very yummy too and a nice substantial canape. Cocktail sausages are a traditional winner at any canape party and the new pork and apple cocktail sausage glazed with Heritage Venues honey and paired with Apple Pimm’s, secured it as a firm favourite.  Delicious. Everyone loves a G&T on a summers day, and why not pair it with beetroot salmon gravlax on an avocado blini!  It works a treat and was so delicious I had to go back for seconds!  Even Fiona, who doesn’t usually like blinis, loved it! The battered king prawn lollipops, to be paired with a Bloody Mary, complete with a little celery stick were fab too and are a lighter choice for those after more of a traditional canape pairing. All in all, the kitchen have done an amazing job and these fun new canape options have such a great wow factor for any occasion – team meetings included!
