From dips and hors d’oeuvres to canapés and tapas, these tasty little treats are often more interesting and flavorful than more extensive meals. Since appetizers are generally made ahead of time, they free the host and hostess to socialize with their guests instead of being tied to the kitchen. As a companion to the national PBS cooking series "America's Home Cooking", the recipes of this cookbook cover a wide range of styles, culinary complexity and ethnic flavors-- from miniature egg rolls and chicken on a stick to layered Mexican dips and roasted ravioli. Spiral-bound paperback cookbook, approx. 150 pages, approx. 120 recipes.
