What is a Canape?
A Canape is a bite-sized appetiser with meat, vegetables and sauce on the top and a small piece of cracker, bread or even cucumbers as the base.
Different from the buffet which is usually served in hot and large portion, Canapes are small-sized and cold-served, which enables them to complement events when a hearty buffet is deemed less ideal.
Why should you use Canapes for your next event?
Here are 5 reasons why canapes are better than the buffet.
1. Less stress over food temperature and serving time
Being able to cold-serve canapes saves you lots of work in maintaining the temperature of food with heating set-up, especially during winter times.
The cleanliness of the venue is also easier to maintain.
2. More stylish and artistic presentation
Canapes always ignite the imagination of chefs and gourmet and can come in various shapes, colours, ingredients and flavours. It is truly a miniature of a culinary world on a small piece.
This definitely bring up the style of your host and your event as well.
3. No plates, napkin instead
Do you remember the heavy plates you have to carry around during networking? Now, you can save the load for your guest by serving canapes which are easily taken up in a light napkin.
From a host’s perspective, phew, no more plates all over the venue and no more dishwashing. Isn’t this amazing?
4. More socialising opportunities
Just because guests can satisfy their longing for good tastes within 1 or 2 bites, they are free to go around and mingle with each other without having their mouth full.

4. The Rotisserie Singapore catering service
The Rotisserie Singapore is a cafe restaurant near Chinatown Singapore that takes pride in their super tender and juicy roasted chicken.
What is their secret recipe? Well, they are open to sharing part of the long process of the making:
First of all, marinate chicken for 12 hours;
then massage with magic Australian spice mix;
After that, gently roast chicken over spit until they are just nice to eat.
You can definitely order the signature roasted chicken, but other offers also look awesome such as the flower-like salmon tart and quiches.

8. Fine Palate catering service
Fine Palate catering is chartered by a women entrepreneur who has a profound grasp of French cuisine and received early exposure to American cuisines. She is dedicated to offering quality, artisanal catering food to Singapore.
I just discovered that their food is very unique with her personal touch. Look at the yummy-looking sandwich below, I seldom see anyone in Singapore uses eggplants as an ingredient for sandwiches ad the layer of green sauce on the bread is really tantalising to me.
