When the mercury is climbing high in the thermometer, the traditional hot roast of the older, colder lands is by no means the ideal Christmas dinner for Western Australia, and each year more and more housewives are running counter to tradition and serving cold dishes.
Small savouries or hors d'oeuvres served at the beginning of a meal or with drinks are rapidly gaining in popularity and lend themselves to a wide variety of attractive forms and flavours. A new and attractive form of appetiser is the "savoury dip".
