Over Christmas we do lots of entertaining.

When you have guests coming for dinner you know what will put a big smile on their face. Hand them over a generous glass of wine on their arrival, or even better Prosecco 🙂 and you will see their eyes sparkling with joy!

But you cannot possibly have wine without nibbles. Wine tastes better when you pair it with food.

So here you are, try this Parma ham and olives twisters. You can make them in minutes, they are addictive and they will be very well appreciated by your guests.
