The 11 best hors d’oeuvres to serve at your 2019 event
Feb. 21, 2019
Sit back, relax, and enjoy a delightful dining experience at your upcoming Barrie Conference, Gala, or Event. With catering from the talented chefs behind The Last Class and Chartwells, you’ll access gourmet dishes and exceptional service.
Want to make a great first impression but aren’t sure which appetizers or hors d’oeuvres to serve your guests?
We’ve got a few ideas to help you out:
1. Incredible Pierogies
Our pierogies are fresh and delicious! Filled with potato and cheese and garnished with red onion, bacon, scallion, cheddar, mozzarella, and sour cream, pierogis are always a hit!
2. Baked Garlic Cheese Bread & Feta Bruschetta
It’s time for some savoury carbs! Try our garlic-brushed baguette with cheddar, mozzarella, and fresh herbs, or our baguette with diced tomato, sweet onions, fresh basil, feta cheese, and aged balsamic.
Is your mouth watering yet?
3. Hand Crafted Sliders
Choose from your option of slow cooked pulled pork with crispy onions and BBQ sauce, crispy falafel with tomato, lettuce, and tzatziki, or our grilled beef burgers with cheddar cheese, bacon, and garlic mayo.
4. Warm Soups & Dips
Roasted butternut squash soup anyone? How about some homemade chips, flatbreads, and dips? Warm soups and dips can make for the perfect sampler during a cold winter conference or event.
5. Artisan Cheese & Crackers
Did someone say cheese? You can’t go wrong with a beautiful tray of grapes, pecans, crackers, and our Chef’s gourmet cheese selection. We can also provide domestic cheese options.
6. Potato Poppers & Potato Skins
One kind of potato is simply not enough! Dig into our broccoli cheddar potato poppers with cheddar, sour cream, and scallions, as well as our BBQ pulled pork potato skins, featuring cheddar, scallions, and BBQ sauce.
7. Deli Sandwiches & Wraps
Deli sandwiches and wraps can help to tide people over when waiting for their meal. From roast beef to cheese to veggie or egg salad, who says sandwiches can’t be hors d’oeuvres?
We also offer three-bite sandwich options.
8. Juicy Fruit Displays
A fruit tray will add a pop of colour to your event space, and it’s also a good option for anyone looking for healthier food options during your event. Fresh, juicy, and seasonal, dig into sliced strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, and more!
9. Delicious Baked Goods
For guests with a sweet tooth, baked goods are guaranteed to draw attention. Freshly baked cookies, three-bite pastries, muffins, dessert squares, you name it!
However, you may want to serve these items after lunch or dinner. After all, you don’t want to spoil anyone’s meal!
10. Satay For Days
Discover our teriyaki beef, sundried tomato chicken, jerk chicken, and teriyaki chicken satay options.
Looking for other meat-based options? Consider ordering our Thai Chicken Balls, Meatballs, or Breaded Chicken Tenders!
11. Seafood & Veggie Options
If hosting seafood lovers, we highly suggest our Coconut Shrimp or Tiger Shrimp appetizers. For vegetarians, our Vegetable Samosas, Crostini’s, and Spanakopita’s ‘can’t be beat’!
