The food innovation team of M&M Food Market has shared an entirely new term: app-cuterie.
So what is a beauty app?
It’s M&M Food Market’s fun way to swap out traditional cured meat and cheese spreads with a selection of delicious, crunchy snacks from the oven or fryer.
The idea is based on a number of trends, one of which is the growing popularity of snack-only meals.
It also has its roots in M&M Food Market’s 40+ years of helping novice and expert home chefs save valuable vacation time without sacrificing quality.
App beauty tips
The experts at M&M Food Market have come together to provide some helpful tips and advice for anyone interested in making their own app for friends and loved ones.
Decide on the selection: One of the best parts of app entertainment is the variety. Knowing what to have on hand can be tricky, but the experts at M&M Food Market have done the math:
- 10-12 diners = assortment of 5-6 appetizers
- 25 diners = assortment of 8-9 appetizers
- 50 diners = assortment of 11-12 appetizers
Know your amounts: Running out of food is memorable for all the wrong reasons. Just remember that your app-cuterie will replace an entire meal, so plan on 6-8 appetizers per guest.
You don’t need to be a culinary artist: Gather wooden cutting boards and fun-looking dinnerware, a baking sheet, or a cast iron serving pan. Dress them in parchment paper and mix them with garnishes like lemon wedges, parsley sprigs, and colorful vegetable slices. Grab some tongs, skewers, or toothpicks and watch your guests light up (and I’m sorry I didn’t think of the app for entertainment).
Here are some curated selections from M&M Food Market Easy to make appetizers and delicious dessert options from the holiday list, for anyone interested in making their own app-cuterie around the holidays.
