What 4 appetizers do you suggest for a summer wedding reception and why?

All are of the season and light. The beignet is a great counterpoint to champagne or a vodka cocktail.


  • Cauliflower beignet with shishido pepper remoulade
  • Roast pork belly on papadam
  • Honeydew soup shooter
  • Vietnamese summer roll with mango and fresh mint
