Cucumber Sandwiches or Egg Mayonaise, Smoked Salmon with Cream Cheese, Coronation Chicken and Ham and Mustard

Smoked Salmon served on a Bellini with Creme Fraiche or Soft Cheese

Scones, clotted cream and jam 

Mini Sausages on Sticks

And Cake

This all depends on whether you are referring to canapes or something ike the English Afternoon Tea

ooh have you ever heard of a staffordshire oatcake … those are very nice with cheese ๐Ÿ™‚ 

i think it would help to know what type of buffet you mean… to me a finger buffet is sausage rolls , pork pies and cocktail sausages, kids party food ๐Ÿ™‚ 


the problem to me would be just like our accents, our foods also differ from town to town. 

but typically British i think applecore has most of it covered

We are having mini Shepherds pies as one of our canapes, you could also do mini pasties and mini toad in the holes (sausages in yorkshire pudding for those that may not know)


The link below is the canape menu that my caterers have for us to choose from, got some good old english stuff in there


another great one, is to cook sausages, and then put a slit in the top and pipe some mash in for finger food sausage and mash ๐Ÿ™‚

so many good suggestions! I’d add bacon buttys and for the fish n chips you could put them in a small cup.  


@j_jaye:  are you from the north (lancashire hot pots, cumberland sausage)?
