Betti’s Canapées can be offered before a Buffet or can take centre stage. If you would like your party to be plate free, these suggestions of finger food are very tasty.
Betti’s Canapées can also be served with a cocktail. A Spritz made with soda water, Aperol, Prosecco and a slice of orange is very popular, but you can ask to have the cocktails of your choice.
Canapées require hiring of staff to serve them
