New Year’s Eve celebrations are all about friends, champagne toasts and of course, food. Sit down dinners are not where it’s at on New Year’s Eve. Quick bites and finger foods keep the party going until the ball drops at midnight. We found some of our favorite appetizer dishes from 2015 that will showcase some of the best of the year gone by while we look ahead to the good times to come in 2016.
One of our go-to appetizers that pairs the sweetness of caramelized onions with the acidity of sour cream and sherry vinegar.
A modern version of the classic drawn butter with shellfish from Chef Wesley True of The Optimist in Atlanta, Georgia.
A Texas classic that melds spicy chorizo sausage with creamy Manchego cheese. The beauty of this dish is that it is simple to prepare and easy to share.
Chef Ari Kolendar’s recipe for Crab Crema is a staple at Leon’s Oyster Shop in Charleston, South Carolina. The bright flavor of crab is enhanced by lemon juice and avocado.
A bit of work up front leads to a beautiful dish that will be the delicious centerpiece of your party table.
Chef Joe Sparatta showcases Virginia cider in his recipe for Chicken Liver Pâté. A tasty Southern version of a French classic.
Every good appetizer buffet needs a bit of sweet. This sweet and nutty combination is always a crowd pleaser.
