There really is nothing better than spring time entertaining. The weather is warmer, days are longer and the list of fresh fruits and vegetables that are now in season is wonderful.
To get the party started, treat your guests to a selection of nibbles and appetisers. Although appetisers don’t need to be fancy, you can easily turn the simplest of ingredients into wonderful bite-sized party starters.
