Personally, I hate tofu and dislike curry, but a vegetarian curry loving friend came for dinner and I made Curried Tofu Pate. (p62) I certainly was not going to eat it, but I tasted it after I made it. I am now officially addicted to it. I love it so much. I serve it on Romaine leaves instead of bruschetta or crostini. Garlicky Red Lentil Puree (p 67) is another favorite served on Romaine. Feta Compli (p25), who knew that frozen spinach could taste so good? Salmon-Chanted Evening (p72), the most expensive to make of the recipes I tried so far, is amazing on cucumber slices. Other favorites are Not Your Mother's Onion Dip, people actually ask: "What is this?" and devour it. Paola's Mango Salsa(p44) and Black Bean Salsa ( p47, I make it with home cooked beans ) have become salads in my house. No matter how much I make, there are no left overs.
As others have already pointed out - preparation is simple, ingredients available all over, but the results are fabulous. Thank you Diane Morgan for providing recipes for those of us who have more taste than time and money.
What a horrid thing to do to an otherwise great food spread I thought; especially when you have wonderful little books like the one being reviewed here. Being the cheapskate that I am, this is the fourth time I have check this book out from the library. I have been copying recipes like mad and trying many of these dips and dippers out for quite some time now. I will eventually buy this book; just not sure when. Anyway......
This work is broken down into various workable sections. We start with an ingredient glossary, dip tips, and deep-frying techniques for chips. This is helpful information for those that have never delved into the world of chips and dips. The author then gives us thirteen wonderful Vegetable and Herb Dip recopies; all of which are very workable.Read more ›
I also find the dipper section helpful since I always forget how to make the little crustini's for my dips. I would definately recommend this to anyone who enjoys cooking and is looking for some new recipes to try. Great for parties.
