How To Make Gourmet Appetizers

However, if you decide to make something more elaborate, it is likely that the guests will be full before you serve the star of your dinner party. What do you do? Fret not; Cook It has the answer: light and delicate gourmet appetizers.

  • 6 eggs;
  • 1 yolk;
  • 3 tbsp flour;
  • 25 ⅓ fl oz (750 ml) milk;
  • 2 ⅔ oz (80 g) butter;

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
