Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Vollstedt (Big Book of Soups & Stews; Big Book of Casseroles; etc.) is no stranger to the single dish, and she knows party-size portions. The Oregon-based author offers tips on throwing a potluck ("give yourself enough time to plan") as well as guidelines for hosting or attending events including church parties, picnics or at-home celebrations. With more than 275 recipes, her helpful book offers an abundant selection of hors d'oeuvres, including fancy spreads (e.g., Greek Cheese Spread with Roasted Red Pepper on Toasted Pita Wedges; White Bean and Garlic Puree) and dips (Fresh Herbs and Walnut), and more traditional platters, such as Party Deviled Eggs. In addition to great salads (e.g,. Chicken Curry Salad with Chutney Dressing), Vollstedt's casseroles and other baked dishes stand out, with such crowd-pleasers as End-of-Summer Vegetable and Fresh Herb Casserole; Beef Enchiladas; and Ziti with Tomatoes, Artichokes, Basil, Cheese, and Olives. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
