Halloween: The trick to making treats

24 OCTOBER 2012

With the approaching release of Pippa Middleton's new book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, we've been inspired to get into the party spirit by making our own spooky party recipes.

Halloween is the perfect time to let your hair down in the kitchen and have fun with the kids. So make sure to turn it into a family event with a post trick-or-treat party full of fabulous bites to eat.

Get the party started with traditional fete games and turn your front garden into a graveyard with mock-tombstones, scattered bones and gargoyles. Or why not take a tip out of Pippa's book and create some floating ghosts with balloons hidden beneath white sheets.

But what better way to enjoy this mid-autumn celebration than with some delicious, and ghoulsome, party recipes. Turn carrots into fingers and olives into eyeballs – it's easy to put a fun spin on your usual larder essentials to trick and tease your guests.

Decorate your table with streams of cotton-wool cobwebs and create a witch's kitchen with bubbling cocktails, or serve up punch from giant cauldrons.

And this isn't just party food for the children. Charismatic chef and foodie Barbora Stiess shows us how to bridge the gap between fine dining and simple home cooking with beautiful canape recipe ideas. Wasabi devilled eggs add spice to a brisk October evening and are the perfect accompaniment to the delicious pumpkin meringue pies – a fantastic twist on an autumn classic.
