These little forks make great canapés, or bring a big-old platter of them to the table as a starter
Super easy

There's nothing complicated at all about this party food. Just get a whole tray of forks together and lay out your ingredients. The ideas I'm giving you are simply for things I think go really well together, but if there are certain combos you love, get those going too. The beauty of these wonderful forkfuls is that they can be rattled out in no time flat. So you can make them as you're chatting to your guests, or rope your partner or mate into rattling 10 or 20 out. It's about putting things you like the taste of together, on a fork or in a spoon… Simple!

Quarter a fig (you could also use peaches, clementines or melon), pinch apart a little buffalo mozzarella, take a mint leaf then wrap a slice of Parma ham or prosciutto around everything and stab together on your fork. Finish by drizzling over a little extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar if you like. This combination is fresh and lovely.

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
