Canapes are examples of savouries. They are small, bite-sized appetizers typically served at parties, receptions, or other social gatherings. Canapes are made up of a base, which can be a small piece of bread, a cracker, or a pastry shell, and then topped with a variety of savory ingredients such as meats, cheeses, vegetables, and spreads. They are usually served cold and are meant to be eaten in one or two bites, making them easy to handle while mingling at social events. Canapes come in a wide variety of flavors and can be customized to suit the tastes of the guests or the occasion.
