Overview

Remember the nut-covered, pink-colored cheese balls served at grandma’s house for the holidays? Well, these are not your grandma’s cheese balls. Updated for contemporary tastes, Michelle Buffardi’s cheese balls come in both savory and sweet flavors, like cheddar, blue cheese, and Buffalo wing sauce, or Bing cherry, rum, and pecan. And cheese balls are just part of the story. Many of the recipes, photographed in gorgeous full color, are in adorable shapes for all kinds of occasions, such as an Easter egg, Thanksgiving turkey, Christmas ornament, or a football for a Super Bowl party. Other designs are just plain fun, like the Nacho Cat, a Wise and Cheesy Owl, or one that looks like a pizza fresh from the oven. There is so much interest in bringing old-fashioned foods back into style, and this is no exception. Perfect for food lovers with crafty flair or anyone who loves to entertain, this book, with more than fifty inventive recipes and designs, is sure to be turned to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Pages and pages of nothing but cheese balls. No doubt this terrific book is just rolling off the shelf.”
-Amy Sedaris

"Buffardi transforms the tired cheese ball into a versatile make-ahead appetizer. Fun party food for the entertainer with a sense of humor."
-Library Journal

Library Journal
Like Kathy Casey's D'Lish Deviled Eggs: A Collection of Recipes from Creative to Classic and Julie Richardson's Vintage Cakes: Timeless Recipes for Cupcakes, Flips, Rolls, Layer, Angel, Bundt, Chiffon, and Icebox Cakes for Today's Sweet Tooth, more and more cookbooks are updating old-fashioned recipes. In keeping with this trend, experienced publishing professional Buffardi transforms the tired cheese ball into a versatile make-ahead appetizer. Her 50-plus savory and sweet variations—mostly uncooked mixtures of cream cheese, other cheeses, and seasonings—include a cilantro-coated spicy corn ball, an elegant port wine cheese ball, and bite-sized lemon-ginger cheesecake truffles. Buffardi excels at inventive presentations, and crafty readers will adore her charming wise (and cheesy) owl and sweet almond hedgehog. VERDICT Fun party food for the entertainer with a sense of humor.
