One of the funniest things for me when we moved to Vancouver Island was that at least in British Columbia, the locals call appetizers “appys.” I’ve since learned that the folks in this part of the world love to shorten any word they can, including making “mozzarella” into “mozza.” However they pronounce the words, I’ve come across some amazing starters, appys, amuse bouche, etc. in our adventures here. Below are some of my favorites that I’ve written about on thesheepareout blog.
