If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that my favorite part of any get together (besides the company, of course) is the food. It’s?all about the food. Wine parties are great ways to get people together around great food and wine.
Whipping up a few fun appetizers and opening a few bottles of wine is all it takes to get a Christmas wine party going. Invite your friends over and ask them to bring their favorite bottle of wine and you’ll be all set. You’ll have a variety of whites and reds and be able to create a platter of appetizers that pair well with both!
Over the years, I’ve learned to push my taste buds and try new foods. As a kid, I was an extremely picky eater and refused to even try foods I thought I wouldn’t like. With my love of both food and cooking that has grown over the years, I’ve tried to stretch my boundaries and find new foods to enjoy.
Olives have always been a food I’ve avoided for really no reason at all. Luckily Mezzetta has a variety of olives with all kinds of flavors which makes them perfect for a party atmosphere where you’ll have tons of different preferences. You can even come up with appetizer ideas like these salami pinwheels that have olives in them but aren’t an overly potent with olive flavor for those who don’t care for olives.
If you’re looking for a great way to celebrate with friends this Christmas season, grab a few bottles of wine, some Mezzetta olives and your other favorite easy appetizers to get started.
