5.0 out of 5 stars Salty crunch food group 23 Oct 2012
By wogan - Published on
There are about 75 recipes in this little cookbook. It contains; crisps and chips, breads and pastries, crackers and savory cookies, meat and seafood, nuts and nibbles vegetables and grains, dips and spreads. All of these fall into the snack category, there are no hearty sides or meals; but these are not the run of the mill snacks either.

There is a good introduction to salty snacks and their evolution in healthfulness. Tools and techniques are covered, and there are pictures of some of the finished recipes. Not all the snacks - even the chips, are fried, some are baked. Most of the recipes do not start from scratch. The tortilla crisps are made from ready-made tortillas, for example. There are shopping resources and an index.

Some of the recipes that we have tried and enjoyed are; portabella chips, anchovy crisps, cheddar ale bread, olive focaccia with lemon - except I left out the lemon, the best crackers (the last 3 recipes are made from scratch), salami chips with grainy mustard dip, toasted walnuts with tart cherries and rosemary. These give you an idea of some of the different kinds of snacks that are included.
This would be a good book for cookbook collectors and snack lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual and delicious recipes 4 April 2013
By SusanS - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love to cook but am always at a loss when finding a good go-to appetizer to bring to a party. When I saw that Cynthia Nims was the cookbook author for Salty Snacks, I knew the recipes would be delicious and reliable. I wasn't wrong. What I especially enjoy about this book though are the unusual and unexpected recipes. "Cookies" that are savory for example or meringues that have finely diced popcorn in them for a grown up version of kettle corn in a meringue. While these unusual twists are fun, the more tradiional recipes are also a cut above. The pretzels taste delicious with the addition of mustard. I took them to a party and they were devoured quickly. If you're looking for a great appetizer book and/or enjoy Cynthia Nims recipes, you must get a copy of this one!
