Book Description

18 Feb 2008
In addition to specific chapters on salads, vegetables, meat, seafood, and desserts, Narlock includes sample party menus accompanied by preparation plans, as well as tips on buying and serving wine, planning and executing entire menus, sample table settings and presentation ideas, and more. Instead of languishing in a culinary quandary this holiday, consider flavourful pairings like Asparagus with Melted Brie served with sauvignon blanc or Duck and Spinach Empanadas with Persimmon Chutney complemented by a glass of pinot noir.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an awesome little book. 26 Feb 2009
By kiwanissandy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not full size, it's 8.5 x 8.5. But it's still full of great little dishes with big flavors (hence the sub title). In addition to all the great recipes there are complete menus starting on page 131. There is a Spring Celebration, Backyard Cookout, Fresh from the Summer Garden, Autumn Harvest, Holiday Dinner Party, Finger Food only, and Desserts Only. All the menus have step by step timetables to keep you on track with preparing and hosting your small plate party. The icing on the cake is the list of wines that every dish accompanies. It's quite awesome.

You could host a complete party with just this book. This one is certainly more affordable without compromising flavor than Wine Food & Friends. Perhaps a combination of both books and you'd have a meal as well as appetizers, if that is something that interests you.

I did the Pork Saltimbocca with Pan Sauce as one of the other reviewers and it was delicious as they said. I combined it with a Mark West Pinot Noir and it then became outstanding. Definitely worth having. I would also suggest the The Sunset Grill: 125 Tasty Recipes for Casual Get-Togethers and Easy Weeknight Cookouts if you're interested in having outdoor parties and that book too had many small plate dishes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE This Cookbook 17 July 2008
By Lizzie - Published on
I love this cookbook. The recipes are amazing! Among my favorite recipes are the Pork Saltimbocca With Pan Sauce, the Seared Tuna with Hazelnuts and Pink Peppercorns on Couscous, the Molasses-Almond Shrimp on Spicy Cabbage Salad and the Balsamic-Glazed Potatoes and Onions. Everything I've made from Small Plates, Perfect Wines so far has been very delicious! I had a dinner party recently and cooked only from this cookbook. The party was a great success. Along with each recipe are wine parings. I'd highly recommend this cookbook over others in the same category. It's a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Cookbook to Have 2 July 2011
By K. M. Andes - Published on
Verified Purchase
I was looking for a sort of double duty cookbook. One with good suggestions for easy appetizers and the proper wine to go with it. This book fit the bill pretty well. There are some easy to follow recipes that most people will enjoy and with ingredients that are easy to find. The book also takes the guess work out of chosing a wine to go with the food. Nice addition to my cookbook collection.
