Reviews"This guide to apps before entrees is a feast for the eyes—we almost licked the page with the Duck, Olive and Fig Skewers. But it's also mighty handy, printed with a page-at-a-time spiral binder that stands upright while you cook. (Cue the deep-rooted regret at not having thought of it first.)"—Tampa Tribune “A great little collection of appetizer recipes, from simple to sophisticated, and printed in a handy, foldable binding that allows the book to stand on its own on the countertop.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
