Comments to eBook Hors D'oeuvres
A nice book for the price, and the few photos looks good. Pity that there were not more photos with the recipes. Will have to make the recipes to see what the end result will be.
Purchased as a gift for my wife. It's a bit disappointing, but fine.
I had checked this book out from the library to make some appetizers for a graduation party and everything I made was delicious and easy! It was such a great book filled with appetizer recipes I had to have it so I did end up buying it. You will not be disappointed with this book.
I found this book boring and bland. The recipes are not 'new' and fresh. And they lack strong or tangy or interesting tastes. Very mediocre
These recipes will be used by me for many years since they use common ingredients and taste delicious! The photos are helpful too!
So, I have a large cookbook collection. This is one of my 2 favorites. The other being The New Soy Cookbook by Lorna Sass. Every recipe in this book has turned out to be wonderful. When I prepare these recipes for parties, people rave. One of my main interests is gourmet cooking. These are not everyday standard party recipes but are really for those who prefer something sophisticated, delicious and exquisite.
Entertaining is so much easier when one knows exactly what one is going to prepare. Gillian's book helped me plan in the simplest way, by showing the food with beautiful photographs, and easy to read recipies. I have tried several recipies and they turned out exactly how they should, and tasted delicious. It was exciting and rewarding to get compliments from my guests.
Most of the recipes not at all simple, as claimed in the subtitle. I know hors d'oeuvres are frequently finiky and labor-intensive, but I wanted to believe the claim of simplicity made on the cover. It ain't so. Just made the recipe for "Anchoiade Dip With Crudites" which winds up the consistency of a vinaigrette. I suppose you could use it as a dip, if you want it dripped all over the carpet. It's a good dressing but to present it as a dip is silly. Also, this particular recipe is careless. It calls for "2 ounces (2 tins) anchovy fillets..." The tins of anchovies I buy are 2 ounces net. Doubling (or not) an ingredient in a small recipe is not trivial, especially if it's anchovies. The recipe for "Cumin-Spiced Carrots" was a disappointment, too. The flavors involved didn't seem to amount to much. My reaction is this is another pot-boiler compendium of other peoples' recipes, untested by the editor.
