With the festive season fast approaching, this is the perfect book for turning those Christmas drinks parties into totally glamorous affairs.
The book is really well laid out with loads of tips and helpful suggestions on timings, what to partner with what and even colours and tableware.
I like the recipes put together as themed menus, for example the'middle eastern delights' which features amongst other mouthwatering offerings; saffron feta filo triangles with preserved lemon and onion - absolutely scrummy!

'A quiet revolution is taking place - the dining table is making way for the coffee table as the new focus for eating and entertaining.
Small Bites: Tapas, Sushi, Mezze, Antipasti, and Other Finger Foods features practical instructions including tips on preparation and planning. Clever short-cuts and instant assembly dishes help to create maximum impact for minimum effort.'

Arguably more handy than some books, 'Small Bites' measures nearly 7" wide x 9" long, and has 224 high quality, shiny pages split over chapters:

1. Fried
2. Soups
3. Dips
4. Salads
5. Skewers
6. Meat
7. Fish
8. Vegetables
9. Wrapped, Tied and Rolled
10. Sweets
11. Useful Recipes

sandwiched between an introduction and a concise index with useful addresses at the end.

Each section has a stylish opening such as:

VEGETABLES
'Choice is not an issue with fresh vegetables. From Autumn's crimson beetroot to spring's emerald asparagus, each season brings a rich new selection. There are endless ways to prepare them, and simple is usually best. Often, all that's called for is a hint of garlic, seasoning, lemon juice, or creamy goat's cheese.'

There are themed menus with half a dozen suggested items e.g. 'Bollywood Nights', with Seared Cinnamon Duck, Coconut Prawns, Tomato and Ginger Soup, Crispy Vegetable Pakoras, Tandoori Chicken Thighs and Raspberry Meringue along with the necessary planning required to achieve it on the night!

I first bought this book in November and made two of the recipes for a party -- so delicious that I bought 3 more copies to give away at Christmas - great for presents as the book is a small bite of a book - nice and compact. I have since tried several other recipes - to me they seem lead-edge - interesting ingredients in interesting combinations,with yummy results. Hurry, before Jamie copies her....!

You can now enjoy pub night at home with Small Bites. This great cookbook is full of great snacks, finger foods, and side dishes for formal entertaining or a casual nibble for two. The recipes range from simple one or two ingredient eats that can be made in minutes to more complex dishes that take a little more effort. Almost all of the recipes can be made in a half hour with very little marinating or preparation time. Since I tend to get in a mood to cook and grab a cookbook, I like that I don't really have to organize myself ahead of time in order to make the majority of these dishes. I also know that these aspects will come in handy when unexpected guests show up at my door.

I used the recipes in Small Bites for a big get together. I cooked like a mad woman and had a very good spread to show for my efforts. Quite a few of the recipes said that they could be made ahead of time and reheated. I was a bit concerned, especially about the deep-fried onion rings, the corn fritters, and the zucchini cakes but they tasted just as crispy outside and wonderful inside as when I first made them.

This book was excellent. Great ideas. Some simple and some more complex. Great tips on how to plan and combine food and themes. I did a lunch for my girlfriends and they were so impressed and I did it with so little stress. You can tell Jennifer Joyce tests all her recipes as nothing failed to deliver results.
