When choosing your wedding menu I think it’s important to be seasonal, and that applies to your canapés too. With this in mind, here are some of my favourite ideas for winter wedding canapés – delicious!

  • Chopstick forks of spiced duck breast with orange and anise dipping sauce

  • Goujons of pheasant with roasted garlic aioli
  • Mini Brindisa chorizo with roasted red pepper ketchup
  • Mini ‘Toad in the Holes’ with red onion marmalade
