Cocktail Parties

Cocktail Parties

Light classical or jazz music, witty conversation, sophisticated hors d’ oeuvres and well-dressed guests… These elegant events combined the traditions of the Paris salon with a chance to socialize before the theater or dining out. They lost popularity during the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s, since these periods were not so interested in elegance and grace, but have been making a comeback over the past few years. Cocktail parties – complete with classic martinis – are regaining popularity.

Cocktail party food is designed to be eaten with fingers or forks, with absolutely no other cutlery required. For this reason, the success of a cocktail party menu relies more on the presentation of the food than on the item selection. Instead of a full steak dinner, guests are provided with mini kebobs of steak and grilled vegetables. Rather than broiled Pacific salmon, there is sushi.
