Canapés are often thought of as time consuming, and people can be easily intimated by them. The truth is that they are little, delicious morsels, which can be created in a matter of minutes and can be a stylish addition to any dinner-party or meal.

In this feature, we show you how to create some tasty and time-friendly canapés.

Perl Wen cheese with red onion marmalade. Simply cut large wholemeal muffins in half, then toast and spread with butter (Welsh butter of course!). Then, quarter to make your bite-size pieces. Place a small piece of cheese on the top (we used Perl Wen), together with a small teaspoon of red onion marmalade.

Green pesto and walnut – as before, toast the wholemeal muffin and cut into quarters (butter optional). Place a small teaspoon of pesto on the top, finished off with a whole walnut.

Perl Wen cheese with cracked black pepper. A simple canapé, but focuses on the quality of the cheese. Complimented beautifully by the cracked black pepper.

Perl Wen with basil. As before, but this time the Perl Wen is presented with a fresh basil leaf. Both flavours work beautifully together and tie in well with the pesto canapé, featured previously.

We served our selection of canapés on slate canapé trays purchased from a retailer in Newcastle Emelyn, Carmarthenshire. Cost: £5.00 per tray – which we thought excellent value.
