Cooking Term of the Day- “Canapé “


Pronunctiation- ˈkanəˌpā,-ˌpē/

In the culinary world a canapé is an hor d’oeuvre. A type of hor d’oeuvre that is compose of a small piece of pastry, or bread with savory topping, like a meat, cheese, spread, or caviar. They are then finished with a beautiful garnish. You’ll often find canapés served with drinks at a reception or formal party. 

Whenever I think of a canapé, I picture an adorable, tiny open faced sandwich. More modern canapés may use a cracker, small pita, or pastry as a base. Serve some canapés at you’re next swanky dinner party and your guests will think you’re an entertaining mastermind.
