Hors d’oeuvres 101
Hors d’oeuvres are irresistible—and, for many guests, the best part of the meal. When it comes to creating the perfect hors d’oeuvres lineup, Teri Lands of Main Street Fine Catering, 609-921-2777, mainstreetcatering.com, a catering company in Princeton, has a great tip. A smart way to incorporate pricey foods without breaking the bank is to serve them during cocktail hour. "If you love shrimp but don’t have the budget to serve it as an entrée, ask your caterer to use the ingredient in an hors d’oeuvre," says Teri, who created the shrimp wrapped in snow peas shown left.
