A warm dip is sure to draw a crowd at any gathering. This smoky version is served in a bread bowl, and gets a nice crunch from water chestnuts in the spinach dip.
Classic Baked Dip
Mozzarella and Artichoke Pizza
White pizzas such as this are not tomato-based as are many pizzas and somehow seem more elegant. A rich, quick and easy appetizer.
Ricotta and Roasted Tomato Crostini
Making little toasts for crostini under the broiler is a bit fiddly, but this wire-rack oven method reduces the chances of burnt toast. Ricotta is a delicious and unusual topping.
Maple Balsamic Fig Salad with Goat Cheese Croquettes
In the winter, sweeter Mission figs are in season, in summer the less sweet green figs. Walnuts give this salad a bitter edge to balance the sweetness of the vinaigrette and figs.
Black Olive Crostini
Savoury tapenade makes a delicious topping for goat cheese toasts. Great to serve with drinks at a cocktail party.
Red Pepper Goat Cheese Tart
Crisp, flaky pastry is topped with a savoury vegetable mixture and tangy goat’s cheese. Pre-rolled PC Puff Pastry makes this fabulous appetizer a cinch.
