Last night saw me making an appearance at the launch party for PA Life Magazine, a brand new glossy magazine for PAs and Executive Assistants – as you might expect it was extraordinarily well organised (probably by an amazing PA!)…but being slightly food-obsessed I want to comment on the canapé offering – mini burgers were the main feature. I know they now make a fairly regular appearance at events of all sorts these days, but I had yet to encounter these delightful little miniatures and they didn’t disappoint – even down to itsy bitsy piece of melted cheese – just scrumptious! And with free cocktails and champagne on offer I could have really done with more than one, never mind I did at least manage to consume some miniature fishcakes and a gazpacho shot!
Isn’t little food just lovely? Allowing you to have full on flavourful taste of a larger dish in one perfect mouthful. It just like in the classic Cher film Mermaids where the whole family only ever eats finger foods – sounds like heaven to me as an indecisive foodie!
Right now I’m craving classic canapés like smoked salmon blinis and retro party time treats like cheese and pineapple on a cocktail stick. Why can you only have these little treats at parties and gatherings? What’s so unacceptable about preparing them for a TV dinner? There should really be a restaurant specialising in little foods, sharing pieces, platters and bite-size delicious things – I’ve often shared this idea with other women and it’s a real hit – someone needs to put it into action! You heard it here first people.
I guess ultimately little food leaves you hungry, as my visit to Waterloo station’s WH Smiths to purchase a pack of salt and vinegar crisps at the end of the evening sort of confirms! …if I only could haveconsumed a couple more of those baby burgers!
