The last dish Minoo made for the seniors Christmas celebration is Canape. Canape is a finger food which often served during cocktail hours. Canape are usually salty or spicy. Traditionally, canape are build on stale while bread but for simplicity, we use baguette as the base and topped with a mixture of olives and nuts.


Minoo made two different flavours of canape, one with black olives and another with green olives. I prefer the one with black olives as it’s milder in taste. For those who love olives, the green one has a more intense olives flavour.

    When I first read this post I had never heard of Canape but was so intrigued I had to try it for myself. I made it for some friends and they loved it. I found the mix of flavors so interesting. This is a great appetizer to go with some good wine.

    Great blog!

    I don’t know if it’s too many gadgets on the blog or one of your gadgets is iffy. The blog freezes my browser every time I check out your site. Just saying.

      Hi Sofie:
      What do you mean when you say that your browser freezes? I have heard of this happening for some readers but could not really pin point what exactly it is. Could you tell me what browser you are using?
