Food Notes

Stuzzichini et Affini.
Italian terms for Amuse-Bouche and co.
Something to look forward if well-done!
Here's a Canape' stuffed with Goat Cheese, Asparagus and Red onion. Very tasty, easy to handle and excellent for a stand-up party.

Also: Amuse-bouche (uh-MYUZ-boosh), it's French similar-to, but not to be confused with, hors d'oeuvre. A tidbit served as a free extra to keep you happy while you are waiting for your first course to come.
