If you know me (Donna) at all, you know that the Oscars are a holy day in my household. I love everything about performing arts – theatre, film, etc. – and I’ve been practicing my Oscars acceptance speech since I was old enough to watch the show.
So, when our team found out that our new Director of Delight used to have a cooking blog, we thought it might be fun to deviate from the customer service theme and ask her to come up with an easy-to-make appetizer for your Oscars party!
Let me introduce Beth Johnson, our Director of Delight and her perfect and easy snack for Oscars night! Take it away Beth…
We always talk about treating our customers like celebrities, but our friends and family deserve to have the red carpet rolled out for them sometimes, too. What better time of year than the Academy Awards?
With the Oscars quickly approaching, you have the perfect opportunity to make your friends and family feel like stars!
This appetizer looks fancy and tastes complex, but couldn’t be easier to make. The best part? You can prep it a day in advance and plate it when your guests arrive. Enjoy!
