We're serving up two summer canapés + a charcuterie board for an unforgettable rooftop party.
We've gathered our friends and are hosting an intimate sunset cocktail party on our rooftop. Thanks to our friends at Les Trois Petits Cochons, we've got all the fixings for a fantastic spread, featuring their all-natural patés and charcuterie.
We love to entertain in the summertime. Our New York apartment is just not big enough to host a large group the way we like to, so oftentimes we head up to the roof. Our roof deck is a great place for a party, as there is more space to spread out, mingle, and enjoy the scenery. There our guests can partake in a beautiful Manhattan sunset, some cocktails, and a charcuterie board featuring two uniquely delicious canapés that Keith created just for the occasion.
Les Trois Petites Cochons is a one-stop destination for the perfect charcuterie board. Their small batch products show a unique attention to detail and use only high quality ingredients, which make them a recognized brand for French meats world-wide. Keith created two incredible canapés for this party: one featuring Organic Mousse aux Cêpes (mushroom mousse) piped over dried mango and accented with Cornichons Piquants (sweet and spicy baby gherkins), and the second using Smoked Duck Breast, sliced thin and layered with roasted tomato and cheese.
We accented our board with some of our favorite colorful snacks from Les Trois Petits Cochons: Petits Poivrons (sweet mini peppers) and Cornichons. Color is key to create a board that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate, and this one is far from boring. So relax, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy all the tastes the summer.
