HASH(0xa3ca6ab0) out of 5 stars Fantastic for potlucks July 21 2012
By biotos - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your circle of friends frequently potluck like mine does, this book of appetizers will be amazingly handy. Everything I've made from here has tasted great and gotten numerous compliments; the recipes themselves are generally very easy to make and include nutrition info. The Lamb Meatballs were perfect for an Easter gathering, my reading group devoured the Balsamic Shallot and Goat Cheese Tart, and the Garden-Style Sandwiches made for a filling picnic on a duffy boat. The book is divided, as you might expect, by appetizer types, including dips, mini sandwiches, stuffed foods, cheesy foods, meaty foods, flatbreads, desserts, cocktails, etc. The first chapter offers great tips on throwing nice parties (particularly helpful when your previous party throwing experiences involve red cups), covering things like how to estimate total numbers of hors d'oeuvres per guest, how to serve the food prettily, emergency substitutions, and sample menus. Many, if not most, of the recipes rely on whole food ingredients, but be prepared to occasionally find calls for things like frozen puff pastry, pre-cooked meatballs, and jars of marinated artichokes. If you prefer to cook as much from scratch as possible, though, there are more than enough recipes to satisfy; if you don't care about that sort of thing, you'll be gratified by the book's advice to "make some/buy some," especially when you're pinched for time. While I can't speak to how this book compares with the others in BHG's "Ultimate" series, this particular installment hasn't disappointed.

HASH(0xa3ca6cfc) out of 5 stars Not the best Nov. 1 2013

It is just okay. Not blow your socks off appetizers at all. A bit disappointed. I would not recommend this book if you are a more experienced home cook.

I was amazed at all of the wonderful recipes in here! We tried a couple of them and they were so good :) They work great for things like parties and gatherings or just for home. I would definitely recommend having this book on hand if you are looking to be a food expertise. It has a lot of wonderful varieties of foods too.

HASH(0xa3ca6fb4) out of 5 stars Great Recipes! March 27 2014
By Marisa Jox - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave this book to a friend that is always going to gatherings where she needs to bring a dish to share, she loved it! After years of get togethers with the same people you get sick of the same old appetizers, this book was just what she needed to bust out of the rut of the familiar.

HASH(0xa3ca9030) out of 5 stars Terrible binding. Great recipes. Oct. 24 2014
By jv - Published on
Format: Paperback
Loads and loads of great recipes; however, it is paperback and the binding is so poor that the book came apart quickly.
It is now held together with rubber bands.
