Canapes and Frivolities: Recipes from the Savoy, London by Anton Edelmann
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Delicate fantasies of food to be nibbled and savoured, frivolous morsels to stimulate both appetite and imagination - canapes have become the entertaining food of the '90s. Mixing and matching ingredients and presenting such delights in an informal setting can be fun, fuss-free and inventive. The 200 recipes in this book are the creations of Anton Edelmann, Maitre Chef of the Savoy and Jane Suthering, cookery writer and stylist. They have combined their knowledge and expertise, to provide this largest ever collection of sweet and savoury canapes. The recipes draw on culinary cultures throughout the world, from rustic Mediterranean food to common fare on Asian street stalls. The enormous variety of canapes, from quick and simple such as grissini sticks and plums wrapped in Parma ham, to the luxurious and extravagant combinations of lobster, caviar, truffle and foie gras, will inspire cooks at all levels. Whether you are planning for small family gatherings, for predinner cocktails, or an elegant lunch party, this book opens up new dimensions. The colour photographs taken at the Savoy by Michael Boys show just how exquisite in design the canape individually or in display, can be. Such miniature works of art will appeal to the connoisseur and gourmet alike.
