Stir fried shrimp is one of my fav seafood appetizers! It’s super quick, very easy and you can change it up by adding different variety of spices every time. With zingy Lemon Aioli, this stir-fried shrimp turns into finger licking good.
Deviled Eggs are one of those evergreen appetizers! It’s favorite for Easter Brunch, always a hit at Summer Picnic and equally great for Holiday parties too. Unless you dislike eggs, changes are you go straight for that plate and grab one or two before it all goes away.
Crunchy bread filled with cheamy pasta, these Mac and Cheese Bread Bites are delicious and addictive! You cannot stop at one. With a glass of fizzy drink, Maille Dijon Originale dip on the side, and some salad, these Mac and Cheese Bread Bites is a great appetizer. Most importantly adult love these just as much as kids!
Tomato Garlic Confit with some fresh basil on top is a super easy and uber delicious appetizer. It will take less than 5 minutes to prep and 40 minutes in the oven. You can toss Tomato Garlic Confit with pasta, top it on risotto, rice or enjoy with grilled meat and fish. We finished it with some crusty sourdough bread, pretty much wiped the plate clean with the last slice of the bread.

Delicate zucchini blossoms stuffed with a mix of white poppy seeds and creamy coconut. It’s then dipped in a light batter and fried to crispy. The filling for this stuffed zucchini blossoms might sound a little unusual unless you grew up eating Bengali food and then you will find the connection. It’s amazing when served with warm steamed white rice. But it can make a lovely appetizer too, served with drinks to wash it down.

I almost burnt my tongue while making the sauce. The whiff of the chili sauce managed to bypass my stuffy nose and hit the sinus. I just couldn’t resist and instantly dipped a spoon in the simmering sauce to lick it clean. It tasted crazy good and as it reached the back of my tongue, I got a kick of heat. This Spiced Sticky Baked Chicken Meatballs are just what I needed to wake up my dead taste buds!
Making appetizers for holiday parties is one of my favorite things. I feel it’s easy to grab a bite, walk around, sip some wine and come back for another bite. There are a few favorites and humus is definitely one of them. I usually pair it with a bunch of assorted veggies and crackers to dip in. If you want to uplift your regular hummus, add a little smack with Maille Honey Dijon and pair it with zaatar toasted pita chips. Of course, you could keep adding few other sides like radish, cucumber or whatever you like and turn it…

Serve warm and wash it down with your favorite choice of drinks.
Holi is the festival of color, welcoming spring in the most vivid and joyful way. In India, this festival is considered as one of the biggest festivals. Every other street is lit up like a rainbow with people soaked in mass of colors and water. Everyone looks happy! The festival gets its name from the old mythological story of Holika.

However, if there is one common thing that can…
