Celery Sticks with Boursin Cheese
Clean and wash celery, cut in 2­inch sections. Nick each piece of celery on round side so they will not roll over. Fill hollow side of each celery stick with Boursin cheese by using a pastry bag or small spoon. Garnish with walnut and small parsley sprig.

Salami and Olive Swirls
For each swirl, roll one thin slice of salami around a large green or black stuffed olive in a cone shape. Secure with toothpicks. For easy rolling, cut each salami slice halfway through.

Shrimp and Pomery Mustard on Toast Rounds
Using two slices of toasted bread, cut into six small toast rounds by using circle cutters or top of small shot glass. Spread small portions of Pomery mustard on toasted rounds. Place 2 to 3 small chunks of baby shrimp on top of each piece. Garnish with fresh parsley sprigs.

Smoked Salmon Triangles with Dill
Using two slices of toasted bread, cut into eight triangular shapes. Place small portion of soft cream cheese on each triangle. Top with thin slices of smoked salmon. Garnish with a small piece fresh dill.
