Homemade guacamole party treats

01 December 2015

When Paris-based architect Florian invites friends over, he loves putting together these delicious-looking (and easy to make) Guacamole Glasses as a light snack. ‘Our friend is the chef at a top London hotel so for our New Year’s Eve party, I followed his advice to create snacks that taste great!’ Serve with bowls of delicious olives, feta and tomatoes.
