From classic tomato croutons to pot pies with vegetables and cheese, the possibilities to bring to your table are endless.
You can choose to prepare some bites to keep on the table during the whole dinner, or to set up a buffet area just for the appetizers.
Starters can be cold or warm, simple and with just a few ingredients, or very elaborate. The important thing is to serve just a small quantity, in order to whet the appetite; otherwise, it becomes a first course.
