750 Best Appetizers

product image
$24.95

The quintessential book of appetizers for any occasion.

There are more than 750 recipes to choose from because we've tried to make sure home cooks have a selection to suit every possible occasion -- from a dress-down backyard barbecue to the most elegant sit-down dinner. We've also considered the need to satisfy a variety of dietary preferences, from strictest vegans to wide-ranging omnivores. And since we know busy families are probably doing lots of things at once, many recipes can be prepared ahead of time or, if so inclined, made in a slow cooker while busy doing something else.

The book is structured to cover a broad range of options. There are 16 chapters built around specific types of dishes, such as dips and spreads, or specific ingredients, such as fish and seafood or cheese. We've also categorized by presentation since it's such an integral component to appetizers, so chapters are organized by categories, such as "Wraps and Rolls" and "Sticks and Picks."

With so many recipes to choose from, home cooks have got the basis to get any gathering off to a lively start:

  • Easy tahini dip, tuna tapenade, roasted beet and goat cheese spread
  • Feta-spiked watermelon salsa with chili, apple salsa, Bloody Mary salsa
  • Watercress gazpacho, broccoli pesto shooter, shrimp bisque, cumin mint cooler
  • Pepper-wrapped chorizo, duck confit quesadilla, cannoli, beef sushi
  • Pancetta and potato bundles, buckwheat blini, spinach and artichoke tarts
  • Uptown croque monsieur, pinwheel party sandwiches, salmon sliders
  • Spicy sizzling shrimp, smoked salmon and avocado tartare, beer-battered oysters.
  • No matter how easy or perhaps difficult they may be to prepare, a tray of appetizers always seems celebratory, and there is nothing like home-cooked food to make people feel welcomed. Home cooks can use this book to create hors d'oeuvres that will delight their family and friends -- then relax and enjoy the party themselves.

    Alton Brown: EVERYDAYCOOK

    product image
    $35.00
    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - This cookbook has 101 delicious recipes for home chefs of all abilities.

    My name is Alton Brown, and I wrote this book. It's my first in a few years because I've been a little busy with TV stuff and interwebs stuff and live stage show stuff. Sure, I've been cooking, but it's been mostly to feed myself and people in my immediate vicinity--which is really what a cook is supposed to do, right? Well, one day I was sitting around trying to organize my recipes, and I realized that I should put them into a personal collection. One thing led to another, and here's EveryDayCook. There's still plenty of science and hopefully some humor in here (my agent says that's my "wheelhouse"), but unlike in my other books, a lot of attention went into the photos, which were all taken on my iPhone (take that, Instagram) and are suitable for framing. As for the recipes, which are arranged by time of day, they're pretty darned tasty. Highlights include:

    - Morning: Buttermilk Lassi, Overnight Coconut Oats, Nitrous Pancakes
    - Coffee Break: Cold Brew Coffee, Lacquered Bacon, Seedy Date Bars
    - Noon: Smoky the Meat Loaf, Grilled Cheese Grilled Sandwich, "EnchiLasagna" or "Lasagnalada"
    - Afternoon: Green Grape Cobbler, Crispy Chickpeas, Savory Greek Yogurt Dip
    - Evening: Bad Day Bitter Martini, Mussels-O-Miso, Garam Masalmon Steaks
    - Anytime: The General's Fried Chicken, Roasted Chile Salsa, Peach Punch Pops
    - Later: Cider House Fondue, Open Sesame Noodles, Chocapocalypse Cookie

    So let's review: 101 recipes with mouthwatering photos, a plethora of useful insights on methods, tools, and ingredients all written by an "award-winning and influential educator and tastemaker." That last part is from the PR office. Real people don't talk like that.

    Appetites: A Cookbook

    $37.50

    Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown, he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he's cooking, it's for family and friends.

    Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites--dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain's opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl--a role he has embraced with enthusiasm. After years of traveling more than 200 days a year, he now enjoys entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen, however, have caused him, in his words, to have "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten."

    The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.
