TIP OF THE DAY: Use Snifters For Food
When we saw this tuna tartare served in a brandy snifter (second photo), we were one-upped. For years, we’ve been using wine goblets, Martini glasses, espresso cups, tea cups and juice glasses to serve food. But it hadn’t occurred to us to drag out the least-used glassware we own: brandy snifters.
We dragged them from the back of closet, ran them through the dishwasher, and have been using them to serve amuses-bouche, sides, soups, desserts. Family and friends are delighted by the presentation.
If you own Belgian-style beer glasses, enlist them as well.
Place a snifter on the kitchen counter to remind you of what you could serve in it. And let us know what works for you.
