Book Description

Everyone loves party food!

But in today’s busy world, it’s not easy to find time to prepare sensational, healthy hors d’oeuvres to please every palate.
Thanks to the creative ideas in Vegetarian Appetizers it’s never been easier – or more delicious. From elegant Quail Eggs with Olivada to rustic Tomato-Basil Bruschetta, Vegetarian Appetizersprovides the perfect reason to plan a festive event, large or small, fancy or casual. Or perhaps serve several of these tasty dishes, such as Caesar Crostini and Roasted Vegetable Antipasto with Lemon-Caper Sauce, as a romantic dinner for two.

The sensational recipes, which take advantage of fresh, seasonal ingredients, reflect Paulette’s travels through the United States, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and the Mediterranean. The pretty small plates are not just for vegetarians. This is party food everyone will enjoy.

The over-70 recipes include “Lite Bites,” as well as other dishes for heartier appetites. And to finish a party in style, Paulette offers a selection of “Sweet Bites,” including Chocolate-Glazed Strawberries and Chevre-Cherry Bonbons. You’ll find valuable tips for planning and serving with ease and panache. And Paulette’s stunning food photos are also featured throughout the eBook.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously meatless. 4 Jan. 2004
By Matiqua
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you love appetizers and small bites like I do, you will certainly enjoy this small book. First of all, let’s talk about the object in itself: the size is very comfortable, the paper is thick and the pictures are gorgeous, even if there isn’t one for every recipe.
The recipes are all vegetarian, some are even vegan or can be adapted to suit vegans. The layout is clear and most of the recipes stretch on just one page so that you don’t have to touch the book with messy fingers.
The introduction explains all about party planning and organizing. It is followed by several chapters, into which the recipes are organized according to their size and type:
Appetizer Basics
Light Bites
Mezzo Bites
Sizable Bites
Sweet Bites
Each recipe is accompanied by an introductory note about the different tastes involved, by Tips about the ingredients and techniques and by suggestions for advance preparation (which I found invaluable).
I tried several recipes so far and all of them were a success! The Moroccan Carrot Spread was a real surprise, as well as the lebne with zaatar (yoghurt cheese with spices). The Pistachio-Crusted Creamy Goat Cheese Round was delicious. The Caesar Crostini got real raves and were a welcome change from the usual Caesar’s Salad. And we absolutely loved the Apple Salsa and Brie Crostini. The Layered Vegetable Paté with Creamy Horseradish Sauce looked stunning and was quite easy and comfortable, as it could be made in advance.
I haven’t tried any of the sweets yet, but they look interesting too.
I’m really glad I found this book, since I got lots of interesting ideas to use for light appetizers when I’m serving a “heavy” main course, or just for small nibbles for the summer, when nobody really wants to eat a lot.
Thanks Paulette!

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with creative approaches 11 Feb. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Packed with creative approaches to the enhancement of fresh foods, Vegetarian Appetizers is a sampler of gourmet, internationally influenced, sophisticated, yet simple appetizers that are designed to appeal to inclusive palates (vegans, vegetarians, and others). Divided into five chapters, the 144-page hardback covers Appetizer Basics, Light Bites, Mezzo Bites, Sizable Bites, and Sweet Bites, plus Paulette's tips and an appendix for vegan recipes. Most of the 70 plus recipes take just one page, and there are many accompanying color photographs to illustrate the presentation.
Experienced teacher/author/T.V. host Mitchell takes the intimidation out of such taste experiences as Caramelized-Onion Fritatta With Chimichurri Sauce, combining Italian and Argentinean flavors, or Yam Croquettes With Tangerine-Sherry Sauce, or Five-Spice Diced Vegetables in Endive Leaves with Plum Sauce, or the cover feature, East Indian inspired Cumin Scented Potatoes in Filo Cups.
Sprinkled throughout the recipes are invaluable tips for flavorful shortcuts, such as in the referral to Penzeys Spices for making Lebne with Zaatar, a middle eastern herbed yogurt cheese. From the simple, such as Guacamole, to the exotic, such as Quail Eggs With Olivada, to the challenging, for example Vegetable Pates with Creamy Horseradish Sauce, Vegetarian Appetizers packs a punch you and your guests won't forget to appreciate.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book! 19 Jan. 2003
By merrymousies - Published on
We had some parties over the holidays and this book was a key resource for pulling out some creative, interesting dishes that everyone loved. Mushroom pate was a particular hit. The flavors are interesting but not weird, variety throughput the book is great. Most of our friends are meat eaters so it was fun to do an hor d'oeurve party where no one missed the meats. Highly recommended! It made it easier for me to enjoy the holidays! Great resource.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 22 April 2009
By drK - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was thrilled to find this book b/c I'm always looking for appetizer ideas that don't involve meat and love vegetarian cooking.

Unfortunately, I've tried multiple recipes from this book and just have not been impressed. The pictures are nice but the food itself isn't particularly tasty--generally fairly bland, uninteresting, and boring. Many of the recipes are too complex to be practical when you need to make up an appetizer for a party. I've owned it for 2 or 3 years but I'm going to purge it because I just have been so disappointed with the recipes and choices of appetizers. Of the 20 or so vegetarian cookbooks (and a few non-vegetarian ones) on my shelf now, this is the only one I'd give away.
