Small Plates & Appetizers Menu

Appetizers | Small Plates | Grazing Boards Menu

The small plate eating experience became popular in the U.S. in the last two decades. A variety of small dishes can be appetizers ordered à la carte and shared, or they can be small portions of multiple courses served formally. The menu for a small plate experience includes 5 to 7 items.

Grazing tables and boards are collections of appetizers, cheeses, different types of bread, cold meats, snacks, desserts, fruits, vegetables, etc., arranged with themed props. They can be presented as simple or elaborate as you wish.

Small plates and grazing eating experience is a smart choice for large parties. I provide personal chef services for parties with 20 to 60 guests. Drinks not included.
