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!
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:
9. Wrapped, Tied and Rolled
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:
'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!Read more ›
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.

Not sure I can blame the book - I buy loads and so occasionally get it wrong. Was looking for vegetarian ideas. Didn't feel that inspired to make any from this book though.Published on 4 Jan. 2011 by Woosh
