At this time of year there is just so much to do, so if you are having friends round this Christmas, you might want to buy in some party food to offer them. It’s nice though when you can buy good quality snacks and canapes to offer your guests because it makes you feel less guilty about not making your own. Tesco finest have a wide range of chilled party food available this year and we have been enjoying trying some of it out.
Smoked salmon nibbles always go down well with me. I love smoked salmon and Tesco finest Party Food Smoked Salmon Canapes are made with top quality Scottish oak and beech smoked salmon. Resting on seeded thins, the salmon is perfectly complemented by the beetroot pearls. I’m not a huge beetroot fan, but this is a winning combination of flavours as they work so well together.
I love the fact that Tesco have come up with some interesting and memorable options for party food this year. I think we are all a bit bored with cocktail sausages and the like, so it’s good to get some really different ideas coming through. If like us you like Asian food, I recommend the finest Bang Bang Chicken Skewers with Popping Candy with their tasty red Thai chicken skewered onto lemongrass spears. They come with a thai satay dipping sauce and coconut popping candy. Great fun!
Another unusual option which I really love are these finest Party Food Bubble Shots. Inspired by molecular gastronomy these shots consist of a spicy Virgin Mary cocktail (tomato, Worcestershire sauce, tabasco and dill) with pearls of sweet, juicy clementine jelly all served up in glass test tubes. They look fantastic and will definitely break the ice with your guests.
