Reasons to Serve Hors d’Oeuvres at Your Next Party

Figs & Honey Catering of Atlanta makes and serves the most delicious hors d’oeuvres for parties. Why serve hors d’oeuvres? These are small dishes served before a meal. They’re ideal for people to eat because they’re designed to be eaten by hand, with minimal use of cutlery involved. Therefore, they’re convenient. They generally don’t require dishes, spoons, forks, knives, placemats, and other items involved in eating an actual meal.

Hors d’oeuvres (from the French word for appetizer) can be served hot or cold. They can be eaten standing up, rather than seated at a formal dining table. When guests have just arrived at a venue, they’re typically coming from someplace else and they’re hungry. Rather than feed them a big meal immediately upon arrival, appetizers fulfill the need for some food while they can also stand around talking with friends and family before the main meal.

Hors d'Oeuvres

Figs & Honey Catering makes the kind of hors d’oeuvres people don’t eat everyday. These food concoctions can seem novel and exciting to guests, who will comment to each other which item(s) they particularly like. Thus, they serve as conversation starters: “Oh, you must try these sweet potato biscuit sliders. They’re divine!”

“Finger sandwiches” are little sandwiches that can be eaten using one’s fingers– a bite-sized portion that’s tasty. Figs & Honey Catering is known for salt-crusted roast beef and arugula finger sandwiches with horseradish cream as well as smoked salmon finger sandwiches with dill cream cheese and watercress. Again, these aren’t items most people eat everyday, so they’re something unique and different for the tastebuds.

Figs & Honey Catering also prepares and serves blackberry BBQ pork tacos with avocado cream dipping sauce as well as Thai red curry duck tacos with cilantro slaw, fig and goat cheese.

While some hors d’oeuvres may sound, taste and look a bit exotic to party guests, there are also the more down-to-earth staples available, including deviled eggs, antipasto, fruit, cheese and chocolate.

When you have a party in Atlanta, hors d’oeuvres from Fig & Honey Catering can make it a memorable one. Call 404-745-9561 to make your plans today!
