Canapé receptions

Here at Wirral Gourmet we pride ourselves in using the best, freshest ingredients available locally. Canapés are a great way to showcase those ingredients in pretty, bite-sized portions offering the perfect precursor to a meal or as an accompaniment to a drinks reception for a private party, business launch party, wedding or civil ceremony, corporate event or other similar event.

Savoury Canapés

Canapés can be served before a main course as an alternative to a traditional starter, or as a stand alone item to accompany drinks at a reception such as a business launch party or wedding.

A typical selection would include an assortment of 5-6 different types of canapé including meat, fish, seafood and vegetarian options. ​

Wirral Gourmet can present your canapés buffet style (see below), or provide a team of waiting on staff to serve the canapés to your guests.


Dessert Canapés

​Included in our canapé packages are our delicious mini-desserts. They provide the perfect sweet accompaniment to our savoury canapés or after a meal as an alternative to a pudding. Dessert canapés are a delightful and usually unexpected addition to a canapé reception.

A typical mini-dessert selection would include a range of cakes, tartlets, meringues, macarons, scones, brownies, and pastries all freshly made, in house, by Wirral Gourmet.

For more information view our mini-desserts page.


Buffet presentation or hand served

Depending on your event, we can either lay out our canapés elegantly as pictured or they can be hand served by our friendly team of waiting on staff. Please contact us for more information and we can help to suggest what type of service would best suit your requirements.

Private chef canapés

Canapés make an excellent starter for a celebration and one that we regularly provide at our private chef events. Canapés can be enjoyed with drinks before either a sit down meal or finger buffet.

Our chef will prepare the canapés at your home or venue and arrange them beautifully on platters, slate or plates.
