Mod Fam Food… Christmas Canapé crazy

mod fam food

 I don’t know about you, but here at Mod Fam Food we are beginning to get slightly gripped by Festive frenzy. It might be the Michael Buble Christmas album playing on a loop in the kitchen, or it might just be the piles of packages which keep arriving thanks to our ability to internet shop at the drop of a hat. Whatever the reason, it’s time to start thinking about entertaining the fam for Chrimbo, so here are more fabulous canapés to serve throughout December, and to see the New Year in. All easy to prepare ahead and wow your guests!
