Starters and Snacks Recipes

Starters and Snacks Recipes

Starters can vary from a simply prepared shrimp salad to a lavish and expensive dish. What all have in common is that they whet the appetite for the main course and the flavors complement the food to follow. It is therefore a good idea when planning a meal to choose the main course first, then go back and find a suitable starter to introduce the style and tastes to come.

When serving a starter, remember that you do not usually need large quantities of food - that may well result in your family or guests struggling to eat their main meal. Presentation is very important. Whether stylish and sophisticated or robust and homely, the starter will set the tone and atmosphere for your meal. Or course, as our lives become ever busier and our meal patterns change, we often want just a light meal or perhaps to serve a selection of recipes to a group of friends so that they can dip into what they fancy. This section offers many recipes that are ideal for just that, or you can serve individual dishes with a crisp green salad and some crusty bread to make them a meal in themselves.
