Since the game nights have been starting so late, sometimes almost around midnight thanks to the time zones, my best bet is something I do not have to cook. Canapes is one of those things you can manage with an assembly line approach. All you need to take care is putting some complimentary flavours together. For this particular one I have been using ‘water biscuits’ I picked from the famous old Bakery in New Market called Nahoum’s. I have no idea why they call it water biscuits, although I have a feeling it may have something to do with holy water, in which case it may be something they use to serve as holy wafer in Churches (although I could be wrong). By constitution, they are very basic baked salted roundels comprising flour and hydrogenated vegetable oil as the ingredient list says, something like baked papri.



  • Water biscuits (from Nahoum’s) – one could use crackers or slightly bigger croutons instead
  • Sour cream
  • Jam (I alternate between bitter orange marmalade or apricot preserve)
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh rosemary (optional)


Top the biscuits with the cream, dot with jam, garnish with the leaves, carry to your TV room and enjoy the match.
