The 20 appetizers lunchI was too busy to write new posts, at work but also with the project 20 appetizers: a lunch with only appetizers, that we all enjoyed yesterday.

You know some of the appetizers, because they're already here on the blog, the others will be posted soon.
They use many different herbs, some are quick, some more elaborated... bu worth every bit of effort that goes into making them. I will also give you some tips to not go crazy at the end of the day!

What a cute event! Love the theme. Tapas-style meals always make me happy. I like having little tastes of lots of different things.

I love all-appetizer (or pupus as we call them here) meals. Everything looks really delicious!
