Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In her latest book, Sampson (Party Nuts!; The $50 Dinner Party) provides easy recipes for dips and spreads from Caesar Ai li to Basil Tapenade. Rathbun's companion title offers recipes for beverages to serve with those dips, organized into categories such as "Party Animals" (classics like Bloody Marys and Daiquiris), "Drinks That Impress" (a French 75), and "Quenching the Multitudes" (Champagne Punch and Eggnog). Both books are illustrated with color photographs (not seen). Rick Rodgers's Dip It! includes twice as many recipes as Party Dips, but these slim hardcovers are certainly a bargain at the price. For larger collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
