Christmas aperitifs, the finger food way…
Treats for a Christmas aperitif at home (simple finger-food recipes, ideal for the festive season!)
December is the time par excellence for celebrations. It’s a magic time, a time of sparkling lights and the glints of tinsel adornments… and sparkling wines! Our schedules are full of appointment to keep, for exchanging greetings and gifts, or just to say ‘see you soon’ as we each leave for our separate vacation destinations!
Waiting for Christmas together with our loved ones. Taking a break from the bustle of daily life, and making time for a home-made aperitif.
Why not organize a Christmas aperitif around your own hearth? It’s easier than you think! You don’t need to be a top-class chef. Just tune into the mood of the day and – perhaps − pick up some advice along the way! Such as….
Ingredient number 1: the pleasures of togetherness
A warmly welcoming atmosphere, feeling at ease with ourselves and our guests – and we’re already off to a great start! By the way that means you! Feeling at ease with yourself means knowing it’s all working out fine. So don’t think otherwise − because if you do, it’s more likely something will go wrong! Organize things ahead of the date and then just enjoy this special occasion, when you at last have a chance to focus on quite simply enjoying the company of your loved ones.
So what’s our advice? Don’t go in for complicated things that mean you have to get up from the table every five minutes or so, just to make sure nothing boils over or burns. Choose simple recipes and do everything you can before your guests arrive. Go for small tempting treats, perhaps finger-food style. That shouldn’t take up too much of your time and energy.
Why not organize a buffet aperitif, where everyone’s free to choose what tempts them most?
Original Christmas-style treats to amaze our guests!
Making a (tasty) treat of your Christmas tree
A toast under the mistletoe!
For your festive season toasts, we recommend Prosecco di Valdobbiadene DOCG, an extra dry sparkling white wine noted for its aromatic freshness, fruity fragrant notes and magnificent perlage!
The ideal serving temperature is 8-10°C in a flute champagne glass.
Have we forgotten anything? Yes! Our own greetings!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
