Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

What is a dip, exactly? Liquid? Solid? Appetizer? Main course? The answer to all these questions is yes, according to this slim, stylish cookbook devoted to every possible manifestation of dip. Providing easy and satisfying recipes for lunch dips and dessert dips, seafood dips and tofu dips, this is the perfect volume for those who can’t help throwing yet another Super Bowl party or housewarming. Black Bean Salsa with Cilantro and Chiles is spicy and colorful, perfect with a big bowl of nachos, while Goat Cheese, Chive, and Pistachio Spread is smooth and sophisticated, classy on a toasted baguette. Several of the dips would work well as sauces for meat, fish or veggies: Balsamic Roasted Tomato Spread with Garlic Olive Oil is delicious on eggplant, as the author suggests, and Fire-Roasted Corn and Sweet Red Pepper Salsa is a terrific accompaniment to grilled swordfish. Some of the recipes are burdened by too-cute names, like the Feta Compli, an otherwise harmless Greek-style dip, and the Salmon-Chanted Evening, a dip reminiscent of lox-flavored cream cheese. But most of the recipes are down-to-earth and useful, and the best ones—Lime Mousse Dip, Chorizo Chile con Queso, and Caramel and Dark Rum Fondue—were made to be eaten in heaping spoonfuls, straight from the bowl.

This cookbook is one of my favorites.

The author's directions are so precise that even a beginning cook can do a pretty good job in creating any of these wonders.

If you serve your family cool whip and kraft singles - skip this book. If you enjoy "new tastes," like to dazzle your friends and receive raves even though you did not slave in the kitchen all night or spend a fortune, - this book is for you. When a friend gave it to me as a "hostess gift" I thought she was silly: people who know how to cook don't need recipes for for dips, right? Was I wrong! The book has become my most used cookbook when we have people over.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Now I am not a food snob! My wife is, but I will eat just about anything as long as it does not actually eat me first. But I do have my limits. I recently attended two events. One was a rather formal reception and the other a semi-formal gathering. Both events featured some great food; expensive and well made food, I might add. But alas, both featured an item that simply shut me down gastronomically speaking...it was their dips and dippers. Do you know those horrid dip concoctions you buy at the supermarket already mixed, either in the cooler section or in jars in the chip section? Well I hate to tell you but that is what was served; that and bagged potato chips! I hate to say it, but this stuff was enough to sicken a maggot. I went home mumbling to myself... "What on earth were those people thinking?" I hate those prepared dips with a passion and unless I am at a pick nick, I am not very tolerant of potato chips out of the bag either.

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.

I have made a number of dips from this book, and I'm always satisfied. The recipes are easy to follow, and the dips seem to always receive rave reviews. The dips are basic enough, but also usually have a unique twist that satifies. If you need to make a dip, then you should pick up this little gem of a book!
