This dude wants the spread.

It comes in it's own special box!

All about Ruth. She was a specialist in summer cooking and children's cookery.

As fabulous as Ruth sounds, she does a certain amount of throwing things at the wall to see if they stick. They usually do! What's a Bermuda Onion? More here.

Classic anchovy and egg canapés. And I don't know about you, but I just can't get enough carrot curls. Bro, I really mean it.

I'm willing to try making little carrot shapes out of soft yellow cheese. What could go wrong? And it's impossible to disagree with Ruth's advice on how to make a nice party table. Have a color scheme and keep it simple!

I'd go face down in this.

Come and get it? Don't mind if I do!

Thanks Ruth, for all these dainty and delicious snack specialties!
