the cocktail event
Here are a few things you won’t see at our cocktail parties: tomato and bocconcini on a stick; pigs in a blanket; dried-out chicken teriyaki skewers. We’re passionate about providing truly delicious and inventive bites and appies for your event, and the quality, flavours, and originality are what set our appetizers apart from the rest.
Cocktail parties provide the perfect venue for us to be our creative best, and we devise unique and delicious flavour combinations with only the best of seasonal ingredients, all to deliver a wonderful and delectable experience for your guests.
