GREAT HORS D'OEUVRES AND APPETIZERS CLASS

This spring I taught a Continuing Ed class at a West Nyack venue called BOCES. We had twelve participants and made a lot of food. It was a great bunch of people and hopefully they got to take away some useful tips and techniques. Here are some photos (I've tried to add captions but there is something about this system that has me unable to do so. I'll try again another day.):

These appetizers look great! But none are named, described. Easy to identify what some are - but some are a bit mysterious. Can you add some descriptive information?

I want to make them! Thanks for your foodie inspirations.

Thanks for your comment. As I noted in the first paragraph I was having some technical difficulty adding captions. I find this system a bit stubborn at times.

I'm not really a foodie, though that seems to be the generic term for anyone who does anything with, food, recipes, cooking these days.

I'd be glad to add a list of some of the items cooked in the class. Stay tuned...as a bit busy today. Thanks for the reminder.
