To make the crostini, cut a French baguette into diagonal slices and place them on an oiled baking tray. Place the tray into a warm oven until the bread is crispy and golden in colour. To make the sour cream and salmon canape, lay a few crostini in a line and then place some sour cream on each slice, then cut a slice of smoked salmon, about 1 inch thick and lay it on top.
Cut a few chive leaves into strips and place them in a criss cross pattern on top and sprinkle some red onion over the top. Twist some black pepper over the canape and then squeeze over some lemon juice. Asparagus tapenade: Rub raw garlic onto a crostini slice and spread some tapenade on top. Wrap the asparagus heads in separate slices of Parma ham and then place them on top of the crostini. Slice a tomato thinly, then place a few slices on top of the asparagus and Parma ham, dribble some olive oil over the top and a twist of black pepper.
Beef tartar: Trim off the fat from a 5oz fillet steak. Slice the steak into thin strips and slice those slices over and over again until the meat is in small pieces. Put the meat into a bowl and add the chopped capers, chopped parsley, Dijon mustard, dash of Worcestershire sauce, chopped gherkins, a little red onion and the raw egg. Mix everything together so that it combines. Sprinkle some black pepper over the mix and squeeze over some lemon juice and a dribble of olive oil. Take a crostini slice and rub raw garlic on the surface, spoon some of the mixture on top and garnish wit ha criss cross of chive pieces.
Tomato, pesto and mozzarella:
Rub a crostini slice with raw garlic. Cut the tomatoes into chunks and pop into a bowl with red onion, chopped parsley, black pepper, olive oil and lemon juice and mix to combine. Spread some pesto onto the crostini slices, sprinkle some tomato chunks on top and then place a slice of mozzarella on top. Place the canape the grill for 2-3 minutes.
