I’ve made some weird nibbly bits in my time.
One keeps coming back to haunt me. I considered it to be a complete tour de force in the finger food assembly department. It was a miniature take on the classic Danish smorgasbord serving of an egg and tomato sandwich. Imagine:
Tiny Toast square
Schmear of Mayonnaise
Slice of hard boiled egg
Slice of cherry tomato
Small dollop of Mayonnaise
Fresh cracked black pepper
Sprinkling of chopped chives
This might sound rather mundane until you consider the fact that my hard boiled eggs were all dimensionally congruent with their respective Tiny Toast slices. By this, I mean that I used an egg press. Yes, the eggs perfectly matched the square outline of the mini-toast pieces. It was a total triumph of food geometry. It was a masterpiece of presentation. The miniature tomatoes nestled upon the square egg slices in precisely retentive perfection. It was a Neopolitan extravaganza. I even included entire cooked square eggs with whole peppercorns pressed into each side so they resembled gambling dice on the platter in order that the square egg concept was well advertised. The outcome?
What about your wacky appetizers?
