Chef Michael's Spoon Hors d'oeuvres

Chef Michael's waiter-passed Spoon Hors d'oeuvres feature a sampling of tastes. Developed while Chef Michael was a member of the USA Culinary Olympics team, the innovative appetizer gets thumbs-up from guests. Not only do they get a delicious bite of Chef Michael's award-winning cuisine, but guests don't have to do a balancing act of a plate, fork, napkin and drink while trying to eat an oversized piece of food. 

Chef Michael's signature Spoon Hors d'oeuvres are welcomed, fun and the talk of any reception. And, unlike plated appetizers usually assembled hours before, Chef Michael's Spoon Hors d'oeuvres are prepared by M Catering by Michael's culinary brigade just minutes before serving. Each Spoon Hors d'oeuvre is fresh, flavorful and easy to eat. No mess; no fuss.
