Christmas is an exclusive time for turkey-laden feasts, stuffed croquettes, mulled wine and more chocolate selection boxes than you can dream about. But for those who love to throw parties, this season’s fanciness multiplies by a hundred. While we all love Christmas for so many reasons, it’s also party season, which means Christmas cocktails galore – and of course canapés.
Yes, going with traditional Italian cuisine at The Grapevine is also an option, but allowing our chefs to create your own bespoke canapés menu for the Christmas party haul is way more fulfilling and TASTIER!
Here are some of our favourite go-to canapé menu items, that you can rustle up quickly while chatting and spending time with your guests. Our bespoke menu promises to impress guests and cement your status as an ultimate party host!
Mini lobster rolls
What else could be the proper posh Christmas party food than this! These mini lobster rolls are not only easy to grab for anyone but look impressive too – perfect for hassle-free foodie entertainment at a Christmas party.
Want a light canapé item? These delicate crab crostinis make seamless, easy canapés for drinks parties. We make the crab mix and toast the baguette ahead and bam, crostinis are done! Assemble right before grabbing the bite in brunch.
Mozzarella cheese sticks with a spicy dip
Want to please the party crowd this Christmas? Try our gooey mozzarella sticks with a spicy dipping sauce. Blocks or sticks of mozzarella stand up better to deep-frying and still give you that cheesy, stringy pull. These are best cooked when frozen, so they are a perfect Christmas nibble ranked by all the hosts over the festive season.
Smoked black pudding croquettes with apple sauce
Looking for impressive canapés to treat your guests at the party? Dare to miss out on our crispy potato croquettes. These indulgent croquettes are packed with black pudding (smoked) and creamy blue cheese.
In need of really delicious and easy entertaining ideas? Try our simple party tartines for fuss-free and mouthwatering party food that’s a bit more substantial than canapés.
Bacon filo pastry
Want an elegant, fancy show-off canapé? These Impressive and tasty, delicate filo pies with pancetta, parmesan, and spring onions make up for the perfect Christmas treat over the Santa season.
Fig and goat’s cheese puffs
The easiest Christmas party bespoke food with just 4 ingredients equaling to a heavenly taste. This simple canapé uses our special Italian puff pastry topped with goat’s cheese and pretty figs – the perfect Christmas canapé.
