    101 Bar Bites
    ISBN: 9781849758079
    Publication date: 01/07/2017

    A selection of moreish and satisfying nibbles, snacks and small plates to accompany your drinks. From sophisticated classy bites to deep-fried cheesy treats. Because fully eating is cheating! (But small bites are OK). The trend for superior bar snacks has steadily been gaining traction over the last few years. First, we had the revelation of posher crisps and fancy nuts, now bars in major cities across the world are upping their menu game in order to capitalize on foodie trends and keep up with customers who want informal, relaxed yet good quality grub. Dishes that are truly delicious and interesting, yet which won't lull them into a food-induced stupor, break the bank or force them to get up from that prime-position bar stool and interrupt the flow of the evening. Transfer this laid-back eating concept to your very own cocktail parties, gatherings and cosy nights in with 101 Bar Bites. Picture the scene: you want to show off your culinary prowess with something homemade and fortify guests for a night of merriment - but the night is not calling for a formal sit down meal.Perhaps you are watching the big game on TV, preparing to go out dancing or simply chilling with good friends and a bottle of wine. Things you can quickly grab and consume - not necessarily with a knife and fork. In this wide range of bar bites inspired by cuisine from all around the world, find something to enjoy whatever your tipple: from sliders, onion rings and loaded fries to go with a pint of lager to infused olives, bruschetta and whitebait with a crisp white wine. Mexican nachos will be ideal with tequila cocktails, or a divine charcuterie platter is just the thing to accompany a heady glass of red. The food is divided into chapters according to portion size. First come Nibbles, which will include Home-made Tortilla Chips and assorted dips, Infused Olives, Masala Popcorn and Rainbow Pickles. Next is the Snacks chapter, which includes slightly larger morsels like Chipotle Chicken Wings, Onion Rings and Persian Sausage Rolls. Small Plates is where you can find the most substantial food: try mini Pizzette, Sliders, or a Gourmet Grilled Cheese.The Sharers chapter includes food which can be served on platters, big bowls and boards such as Nachos, Charcuterie and a Seafood Platter. There is also a Sweet Treats chapter so that you can indulge your sweet-toothed guests with bite-size Mini Doughnuts or Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Pretzels. Finally, there is a selection of classic drinks and cocktails to complete your bar snack menu such as a Tropical Punch, Iced Margaritas or Elderflower Champagne Cocktails.

    750 Best Appetizers
    ISBN: 9780778802723
    Publication date: 01/02/2012

    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, beerbattered 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.
