Build You Own Toasts

We served build your own toasts for our engagement celebration last Saturday afternoon. We provided a selection of breads and toasts, spreads and toppings and let people come up with their own combinations. It was a roaring success and letting people make their own turned mindless canapé eating into a fun and interactive experience.

Garlic Smashed Pea and Smoked Mackerel Toasts

Smashed peas on toast or the 'poor man's avocado' as we like to call it is a household favourite. I love it for breakfast underneath a runny fried egg. I always get great comfort knowing my freezer is filled with at least three bags of peas just in case we suffer a national pea shortage crisis.

Aubergine and Goats Cheese Crostini

This recipe is adapted (more like guessed) from the eatery that inspired our Venetian tapas in Shared Plates. It consists of a simple whip of goats feta atop a toasted slice of ciabatta and finished off with a slice or two of oven roasted aubergine. Simple yet very delicious.
