Get ready for spring entertaining with a session on hors d'oeuvres and appetizers. We ill use the ingredients of the season along with staples from a thoughtfully stocked pantry to create tidbits packed with flavor.

some will require some preparation time and others will be quick and easy. We'll do items that can be prepared in advance and components that can be frozen ahead and assembled in a few minutes. Finally we will compose a bountiful antipasto platter that with bread and wine could stand in for a light supper all summer long.
