We all love canapes and this unique, decorative food treat is always a winning event. Creative canapes sound simple on the surface but these tiny treats are much harder to create than they look. Believe us when we say these tiny treats can be difficult to whip up, especially when you’re trying to get approval of the pro chef. This chef will show delegates how to create a selection of canapes and afterwards it will be your chance to recreate them. The final results will then be judged by our top chef and catering assistants. This is exactly what the food doctor ordered!
