Everyone’s taste is deliciously different, and I agree with the poet, William Cowper, who first said that ‘variety is the very spice of life’. So much so that I often struggle to select just one or two items from the menu while I’m out for a meal. Ideally, I’d like a bite of every dish on the menu please. (A million thank-yous to the genius person who invented the degustation menu!)
While there’s something very special and formal about sharing a sit-down meal at a celebration, to champion my passion for variety, informal cocktail party celebrations are my favourite style of eating and sharing food, and is the style of catering that Sassy Bites specialises in.
It is still fashionable for great cooks to spend hours creating the perfect bite-sized manicured morsels that look too good to eat. While I have a great appreciation for this style of impressive canapé catering, I prefer to take a more practical, rustic, hearty approach.
While my style is creative, my menu does not pretend to make any culinary breakthroughs – rather it offers a rich variety of no-fuss, real-food suggestions based on what people love. If there’s something you love that’s not on the menu, let me know and I’ll create a special version for your event.
