With the opening of The Great Gatsby last weekend, I have been inspired by the Roaring Twenties! The Roaring Twenties was a time when throwing cocktail parties at your home became popular. The rise of cocktail parties inspired the development of “finger foods”, which worked well for tipsy party peeps who jiggled Gin Fizzes and Whiskey Smashes while mingling in loud, crowded rooms. Popular finger foods of the Roaring Twenties included Lobster Canapés, Shrimp and Crabmeat Cocktails, Stuffed Deviled Eggs, Caviar Rolls, Oyster Toast, and Savory Cheese Balls.
My fav? .. the deviled egg. You either love em or hate em – but they have definitely made a come back recently and can be found on trendy menus all over. Austinites should head to 24 Diner for their version topped with crispy bacon. Or head to see The Great Gatsby at Alamo Drafthouse for their Gatsby themed special – Truffled Deviled Eggs topped with Crispy Capers. YUMMMMMMM.
Can I get a thumbs up for some deviled eggs?
