I am a cookbook collector and have been looking over and buying cookbooks on Hors D'Oeuvers and this is the best ever. I belive it is a lot better than any of Martha Stewart. It has great pictures and a mixture of all types foods to serve. If you can only buy one book now, this is it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I am a professional chef and caterer. I found the variety and individual photos of each hors d'oeuvres very helpful and used several for holiday parties for clients. I did however find a number of errors and problems with the editing so I would caution careful reading of the recipes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
