As someone who spends parties shamelessly hanging around the kitchen to get first dibs on the canapés, I've got a lot of love for these Chesham luxe nibble workshops.
If your usual approach to canapés is to open a box of breadsticks and a pot of olives and hope for the best, then you need Canapease in your life – and at your parties.
Chesham-based founder and super-chef Karen is all about make-ahead nibbles, which means less faffing in the kitchen and more time drinking champagne. Where do we sign up? Karen hosts regular workshops, some daytime, some evening, at which you learn to make six different canapés (one of which is sweet). Gift vouchers are available if you want to treat a friend.
So next time you come around to mine and see lavish platter of oven-roasted tomato soup and cheese straws alongside pea and wasabi fritters, you’ll know why. Just don’t scoff them all, OK?
Spring Canapés, Tues 10 Mar (7pm – 9.30pm) & Fri 14 Mar (12pm – 2.30pm), £45pp
