A canapé is a small bite, finger food, appetiser or starter. And the perfect little nibbles and bites are an essential part of throwing any party! Have fun creating your perfect party menu! 

How will my canapés be delivered? Will I need to heat my canapés?

All canapés are pre-cooked and will be delivered cold. However, some canapés will need to be heated by you, so please refer to the individual canapé pages for specific heating instructions. After you order, please refer to your order email or the order form in the delivery box for specific heating instructions.
