Amuse bouche x 15




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 item served as an appetizer, literally 'amuse mouth') presented in lovely little china dipping bowls.

We made deviled eggs (hard-boiled eggs whose yolk is mixed with some mayonnaise and a small amount of mustard, and scooped back into the empty whites), 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.

  9. 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!
    I always love your photos, too.

  11. 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.
    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!
