One of the most important (and often daunting) aspects of entertaining is choosing what food and drinks to serve your guests. Obviously, the menu should depend on the type of gathering and each factor of it: location, season, theme, purpose, etc. However, the best holiday appetizers rest on these recipes which are my general all-time favorite appetizers to serve because of their sweet/savory/salty tastes, ease of preparation and eating, impressive perception and ability to please diverse appetites. This Christmas, you could serve a combination of some or simply choose one as they each offer a unique palette. I have received compliments every time I’ve served each of these dishes and their ease to prepare put them high on my hosting list.
