Starters

5

Your starters need to be unique to get the attention of your guests and to prepare them for the main meal. I would suggest that you put a lot of effort into making these starters looking very nice because that can have a huge impact on some of your guests. If they are satisfied with the meals, then they will definitely come back again or they will bring their friends and family to show them.
