Starter ideas

Dates wrapped in streaky bacon (de-seed dates+wrap+bake for 15-20 mins)
Antipasti (Cured meats, roasted marinated peppers, artichokes etc)
Soup (Any!  No butter/cream and use GF stock cubes)
Caesar Salad (salad+chicken+garlicy,mayo dressing.  Add fried GF bread crutons)
Bacon pots filled with rocket, tomatoes etc (bake bacon strips on upturned pots in oven to make "bacon bowls")
Soft Spring rolls (soften rice papers in hot water and fill with ready to eat raw/pre-cooked food.  Serve with GF soy/ chilli dip. Use colourful ingredients as you'll see them through the wrappers)
Smoked salmon on GF crackers.
Houmous with carrot, celery and cucumber sticks.
