Starters is a reflection of today's approach to eating. Whether at home or in a restaurant, we are increasingly inclined to eat a selection of starters or dine 'mezze' style over several light dishes, rather than consume the traditional three-course meal. This is a very special collection of adaptable, modern dishes presented in a clear and accessible way. The recipes in the book are conveniently arranged according to the occasion: nibbles and snacks; quick and easy recipes for casual meals; simple and satisfying dishes for family and friends; food for groups to accommodate larger gatherings; and posh food for entertaining to impress. The food is versatile and flexible, so dishes can be easily upsized to become lunches and suppers, or downsized to make visually stunning canapes or party food.
