What is Canape

Canapes are prepared in small finger size food, that often eaten in one bite. It originates from France and the name “canape” is derived from French word for “couch”, drawing on analogy that the garnish sits atop the bread as people do a couch.

Normally, canapes are served during cocktail hours, thus a canapé is either salty or spicy in order to encourage guests to drink more. Canape can also be referred as finger food, however not all finger food is canapé.

A canapé consists of a base (bread or pancake), a spread, a main item and a garnish. Traditional spread can be either a compound butter or a flavoured cream chesse. Common garnishes can range from finely chopped vegetables, scallions, and herbs.
