Bloody Mary Cherry Tomatoes

Here is a surprising little canape, which is quick and easy (which we like) and one which packs a tasty punch. Next time you have some friends over try giving them these as a treat. Find some black crystal skewers to spear them with and you have an elegant, unusual mouthful.

I like to serve a couple of homemade snacks in place of a starter when I have friends over. You just have to watch that latecomers don’t miss out.

These are usually on the menu when I do canape workshops or hen parties at The Medicine Garden in Cobham.
