To keep our guests busy while last touches were being made on the gargantuan Ferragosto meal, we offered these tiny amuse bouche (French for small, savory items served as an appetizer, literally 'amuse the mouth') presented in lovely little china dipping bowls.
We made deviled eggs and tuna-stuffed cherry tomatoes; and dressed each respectively with a minuscule Salina caper, and a pitted olive. We decorated each serving bowl with some baby lettuce and, voila smiles on faces.
They are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Buoni ... quando vengo me li prepari? :)ReplyDelete
Who is 'we' and where were you?

So beautiful...I need friends like you to come to my parties!ReplyDelete
I think those tuna-stuffed tomatoes will be making their way to my table.ReplyDelete
Delicious! I'd gobble them all. :-DReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by and checking up on me. XOXO
Thank *you* for your constant stream of lovely comments!
Ha, sure! I love parties!!
I hope they wil ;)
So happy everything is OK! Come back soon
Oh, what a reminder. I love devilled eggs, but haven`t made them for ages. I used to fill them with tomato paste added to the yolk and the mayonnaise, or some cream cheese, yes, and mustard. Must do them again!ReplyDelete
I always love your photos, too.
Yum, tomato paste added in the deviled eggs sounds great! Thanks for the tip!! Thanks, my friend.
This is an idea I would definitely steal! I usually do meze as starter when we have guests round, but this would be a lovely alternative.ReplyDelete
The little bowls just make it, so delicate, so pretty.And I have loads of these, they're what my kids eat their (raw) veggies in, at the start of dinner!
Great visual effect with very little effort!! I love Turkish meze, what kind do you make?
Oh wow! The photo and food look amazing. What a cute and creative serving idea. Love it!ReplyDelete
