Canapés are popular at the Food & Wine Festival due to their visual appeal, portability, and endless possibilities. A canapé is a type of hors d’oeuvre, a small, prepared, and often decorative food, consisting of a small piece of bread, puff pastry, or a cracker wrapped or topped with some savory food, held in the fingers and often eaten in one bite.


Festival chefs have employed bread, crackers, toast, puff pastries, often topped with colorful savory bits.
