Party time! Colourful dishes and big flavours mean vibrant parties. These nibbles are designed for passing around as people chat and mingle. You could also leave them on a table or bench for people to help themselves.
This playlist starts upbeat and toe-tappy and just gets more funky as it goes on. I’m imagining that it sets a fun and lively mood as guests arrive and start to sip, eat and enjoy, then the music steps up so that – maybe, hopefully, you never know – people start dancing. I mean, seriously, I don’t know how you could stop your foot from tapping during James Brown’s Soul Power. Listen here.
Pops of cheery colour are the key to bringing this menu to life. I’m imagining that you’re standing in a living area, deck or garden, the music is a little louder than background volume, and all the necessaries (napkins, heaps of glasses and water jugs, a towel or two just in case) are in easy reach so you can relax, focus on the last bits of food prep and enjoy the party too.
Want more Thermomixing ideas for your party? I’ve got heaps right here at Dani Valent Cooking, available to all subscribers. The Chicken Tart is perfect, and you can make mini tartlets for easy nibbling. Shane Delia’s Cauliflower Hummus is full of flavour – everyone falls in love with it. Try serving it with my Rice Crackers. Strawberry Gazpacho is a summery alternative to the Mushroom Cappuccino. The Chocolate Ravioli are a genius dessert canapé. Ah, I could go on! Here are all the recipes subscribers have access to.
