Announcing Monthly Mingle - Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres


spago-beverly hillsAfter the fabulous roundup of Bollywood Cooking, its now time for another round of Monthly Mingle, an event started by dear Meeta of What's For Lunch Honey? This time, I get to play the hostess, and as all of you know that I love entertaining, this week's theme should not be a surprise! We'll try to spice it up this time with Appetizers & Hors'Doeuvres. "Hors'Doeuvres" is the fancy french name for what is referred to as "Appetizers" in English. These are served as starters before the main course, and are often the only highlight of cocktail parties. These are the tasty bite-sized servings that are always a favorite at any party or gathering. Unlike main course dishes that are rich and filling, hors'doeuvres are light and petit, and can be sweet or savoury!

For this monthly mingle, we'd like you to share some fancy vegetarian appetizers. Cook something that's pretty to look at and tasty to bite in, something that looks good on a plate and is irrestible to your guests!

This event has been completed and the roundup is now available at Appetizers & Hors'doeuvres - Recipe Roundup!

Thanks everyone for making this event a huge success!

Once my show is over, I intend to become a regular cooking/baking fool. I'm putting on my thinking cap already. I'm finally starting to illustrate my blog, so I can feel a bit more legit when I do blog events.

Deborah Dowd said...

I love appetizers, and often during the hot summer, we have an assortment of appetizers instead of a full meal. It is a great way to eat!

Mansi Desai said...
