The Cupcakes and Cashmere 'Holiday Appetizers' post addresses the culinary needs that come with Christmas, Chanukah and New Years celebrations. Writer Emily Schuman describes entertaining as "...both exciting and daunting, since making a strong first-food impression often sets the tone for the rest of the party."
Despite the stated skepticism, she has taken on the responsibility with goat cheese-stuffed bacon-wrapped dates, deviled eggs pickled in beets and sun-dried tomato pesto crotinis. The small bites are ideal party favors as they can be served and consumed with ease between conversations and laughter.
Savory flavors are also central to this Holiday Appetizers review, favored by Schuman here due to the minimal effort required and the in-season appeal of the ingredients.
