Chilean Canapes – Pilar’s Chilean Food & Garden

Versión en español

Canapes have a long-standing tradition in Chile. Many families made them at home for celebrations like Christmas, religious milestones, and weddings. In Chile is easy to pick up a tray of canapes at bakeries too.

Chilean Canapes

When I was a girl, my mother spent time selling Chilean pastries and canapés, and of course, she recruited me to help. The truth is, I loved it. It still entertains me, doing manual things with beautiful results and even better if they are eaten. I love repetitive activities where I can leave my mind blank or wander. They relax me.
