Starters. Hors d'oeuvres. Naughty Noshers. Whatever you want to call them, they should be tempting, pretty and tasty. They should titillate the palate, stimulate the appetite and be utterly irresistible. As you plan your menu, consider that appetizers should reﬂect not only the mood of the party, but also the season of the year — lighter in the summer, heavier in the winter, more casual for a Superbowl party or sublimely elegant for a holiday gathering.
