    Forget about shocking everyone: sometimes a simple menu reception is all that your need. Everybody will be comfortable even if you give them a cup of coco. Of course feel free to dress up your dishes in an elegant way, a chess macaroni dish might be your answer.
  • Cocktail parties are the trend of this era. Everybody throws them and all the called people show up. It’s kind of impossible not to show up: you have a little bit of everything and a good atmosphere. Plenty of bite-size nosh served in large dishes it’s a great way to give some variety to your guests.
