Appetizer Recipes and Ideas
What are Appetizers?
Appetizers (Hors d'oeuvre) are small portioned food dishes (or drinks) that are eaten before a main dish. They are meant to stimulate your appetite before a meal.
How Many Appetizer Portions Per Person?
If you're planning to serve appetizers at a party or gathering, 3-4 pieces of food per person is a good estimate. Therefore, for a party of 10 people, you should make 40 pieces total to be safe. For a party of 100 people, you'll need to plan for 350-400 pieces of food.
