Hailing straight from Hayley at Taste Catering‘s pantry, these manchego and quince skewers are just a small example of what you’d expect to see on their menu. One part savoury, one part sweet, with just a touch of fancy, these little numbers are sure to be a hit at your next event. And because we kind of adore all things Hayley, we’re doing a pretty intense interview with her over on our Little Black Book. Who knows, you might just learn a thing or two (or six, in my case).
