appetizers

What are some ideas for appetizers for a wine tasting party for 10 guests. I'm looking for something other than the standard cheese tray

You could do a savory puff pastry tart cut into small squares like this one

or these Pomegranate Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

Have a look at one of last year's contests: http://www.food52.com/contests/265_your_best_onebite_party_snack

Roquefort gougeres (or their Gorgenzola cousins) are my "go-to" -- hot out of the oven they practically SCREAM for a glass of wine.

One of my seasonal faves, you can form them in muffin tins if you like. Great flavor... http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/2004/12/pancetta_crisps_with_goat_cheese_and_pear

Bacon wrapped stuffed dates. Perfect blend of salty and sweet. I like to stuff them with bleu cheese, feta or almonds.

Meatballs in a teriyaki sauce
Cheese straws
Spicy roasted chickpeas
Mini crab cakes
Blinis topped with creme fraiche and caviar

Bruschetta. Bacon wrapped scallops. Thai chicken salad in lettuce cups. Salmon mouse in endive leaves. Seared beef tenderloin medallions with horseradish cream. Pork tenderloin medallions with cranberry chutney. Carmelized onion and goat cheese tarts. Spinach and feta tarts.
I can keep going...I love apps.
