    Best hors d'oeuvres Book!

    I'm addicted to cookbooks, especially hors d'oeuvres/appetizer books, so I own a lot. This book is by far the best one. I have used so many recipes! They are easy to make, but also very unique (not the same old recipes you find in every other book). I have yet to make something that I didn't like and I've had this book for 3 years! I've gotten more compliments on food made from this book then any other! This book is also good to adapt your own style to the recipes. It's perfect for recipes for a Wine Wednesday or girls night! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for a staple to have in your culinary library!

    If you are looking for a manageable book on good, (culinarily) correct cooking techniques/presentation/recipes & ease of use, you need this book.

    I have been cooking since training in Hotel/Restaurant Management for 35 years. Hors d'oeuvres is so easy to follow, uncomplicated & supplies nearly a 1/4 of it's content to "making sauces, pastries, cooking techniques, presentation, correct recipes" ... in such a convenient sized book. There are a lot of people who are intimidated as soon as they walk into a kitchen, as well as those who just want to know the facts on how to cook. This is an excellent book which would cover even apprenticeship topics, is very readable & a real gem.... Thank you for putting it together, it's in my culinary library for life....

    You Can Tell They Are Professionals

    Every time I use this book I get great results. This book is the one I use for parties, potlucks, and any kind of social occasion. The authors are clearly experienced; their recipes are clear and exact. They use ingredients in wonderful combinations. I have used this book for at least ten food events in the last 2 years -- and although I have another 100 cookbooks, I can guarantee you that if I find a recipe I'm looking for in this book, I will make it, because they understand the value of time. Everything is designed for a busy, creative cook - I can make 12 appetizers for a party (pita strips, 2 dips, 2 kinds of crostini, 3 kinds of tartlets, biscotti, baby tuna burgers, 2 kinds of skewers) all in a few hours and with fabulous results. Their section at the back of the book presents menus AND estimates for the number of people and kind of party. I used this, too, and found I had satisfied guests, and only a few leftovers. What a Treasure!
