Finger food to the rescue


Finger foods are all those snacks that you usually pick up with your fingers and consume without creating an undue mess, or a mess you are content to endure for the sake of fun and flavor. Finger food is generally casual, though the introductory snacks preceding a fancy meal, served while you are standing around drinking your first glass of wine and waiting to be called to the table, ought to be finger food.

When your guests are trying to balance a glass of wine and dancing to music at the same time, it is best to serve food that doesn’t get their hands messy and can be ingested in a single bite. It becomes really awkward trying to balance cups and plates and forks and it ends up with most people avoiding the food you serve, the consequence of which is wasted food and hungry guests. While serving finger food you have to think about what in each category qualifies as a bit of a treat. While serving finger food, you’ve got to show a little class: the food has to taste good, each morsel should be a noticeable mouthful, but not heavy or stogy.

Spring rolls are loved by everyone

Spring rolls are believed to have originated in northern and eastern China and initially had a wheat wrapper, similar to a pancake. Spring rolls were associated with the Spring Festival in China and other festivals as well. They were fresh or fried and associated with different festivals in different regions and countries.

As they moved from being a seasonal and festival food to be a part of upper-class and middle-class quality foods, they became a significant part of the Chinese food culture and gradually of the whole world as well.  Traditional spring rolls were made out of soaked rice paper, filled with rice noodles, shrimps, scallions, carrots, mushrooms, garlic often accompanied by mint or other fresh herbs.

Most readymade, even packaged spring rolls contain egg whites which are used as a binding agent to keep the spring rolls from coming apart while frying and to ensure a crisp exterior. This, while the filling itself in vegetarian spring rolls is likely to be vegan, the wrapper or the finished product may not.

Some people are allergic to dairy products and may develop aggressive symptoms like rashes and several stomach infections.
