I would be lying if I were to tell you that I didn’t have a few recurrent daydreams centered around playing the part of dinner party host extraodinaire, mastering get-togethers with the ease, know-how, and a barely noticeable amount of frazzled hair and spilled vinaigrette.
In these theoretical Saturday night fetes, I’d pour the perfect drink, time all of dinner’s elements effortlessly, still have time to mingle. Also, my crostini would be perfect. Because, evidently, what you thought simple (the slicing of bread, the toasting of said), is actually quite easy to mess up.
I’m not sure if and when I’ll get the timing down, or the mingling, but thanks to this article, I’ll no longer have crostini to worry about. Read Bon Appetit’s list of the most common canape catastrophes, and how to avoid them, and your next dinner party will be seamless. At least in the crudites stage.
