Appetizers and Snacks

Appetizers or hors d’hoevres are small plates of finger food snacks that are eaten before a main meal. I often serve a variation of appetizers when friends are just coming over for a drink. For me, an appetizer before a meal should increase your hunger and longing for the delicious food that will be served afterwards.
