    Doing a supper for 180 pax.  Looking for about 8 -10 different canape ideas.  Limited in that can't serve hot dishes.  After a mix of sweet and savoury.

    Thanks in advance.

    One of my favorite canapés is a slice of French bread (not toasted) smeared with herbed butter, topped with thinly sliced radish and garnished with finishing salt.

    Crostini topped with wilted greens and shaved hard cheese.

    Cucumbers topped with salmon mouse

    Halved baby new potato topped with creme fraiche and finished with caviar.

    Shrimp on a toothpick with cocktail sauce. Everyone loves that!

    Crostini with white bean purée and fried sage leaf.

    Deviled eggs... Another crowd please!

    If you are open to reading a book, one of the better books on this topic is Martha Stewart's Hor d'oeveres Handbook, circa 1999.

    Shrimp on a toothpick is a classic, but it's technically not a canape.  I wonder if these terms canape and hors d'oeuvres have evolved and are now being used interchangeably.

    Then put the shrimp on a tiny toast!
