5.0 out of 5 stars The very definition of appetizing. March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Typically, I fear French cooking. It's a complex style, worthy of high prices in restaurants, and very rarely implemented in home cooking. Reading through this book, I'm struck by how easy these recipes are. I've purchased both the appetizers book as well as the desserts book and both do a great job of not talking down to any aspiring French cook.

This appetizers book is fantastic and gives you a healthy repertoire to shove in the faces of friends and family members. If you plan on throwing a party anytime soon, this book is invaluable. Pumping out delicious and calorie-conscious bites is the best way to make your party one to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book had me salivating just glancing over it March 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that I'm not the kind of person that cooks for fun or buys cookbooks, but when I do something, I do it big. I figure the french are renowned for their food, so if I'm going to get a cook book, why not a french one?

The book is descriptive and the recipes sound delicious, I was salivating just glancing at them. There are about 30 recipes or so (I didn't count, but that's how many it looks like at a glance).

My only issue with the book is that it could use pictures for every recipe.

5.0 out of 5 stars No French "fromage"? No problem! March 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Tantalizing mix of appetizer recipes. The cold ones are mostly a surprising association of light flavors, whether it be fish and fruit (grapefruit-salmon rolls), while the hot ones feature a diverse assortment of beignets. I definitely didn't know most of them, and since some recipes take longer to prepare (mainly the rolls), there's definitely plenty of room to cook whether you're in a hurry or in a mood to accomodate a fancy apéritif. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fairly simple and mostly quick recipes! March 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I originally bought this book because I am throwing a Paris themed party for a family members birthday. After flipping through it and actually making a few of the recipes on a "test run" though I know that I'll definitely be using these recipes for future get togethers and not just this one theme party. Many of the recipes are fairly quick! I also love that they already provide the conversions from the metric system!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good ideas but not for the novice February 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was torn as to how many stars to give this book. For the novice cook, it will be difficult to follow a lot of the recipes, since much is assumed and some instructions are a bit contradictory or confusing. For example, one recipe using blinis as a base starts out heating the blinis if they are cold, then you top with the ingredients for that particular version and refrigerate. Why heat them? Also, crème fraîche may not be readily available in U.S. markets, but it is easily made from cream mixed with a little buttermilk and let set at room temperature until it thickens. Simple, so why didn't she include it?

Also, in the recipe for Gougeres, of mixing in the eggs, a crucial step, she says merely, "Incorporate one by one the 4 eggs in the batter." This needs to be done quickly and carefully so that the eggs are incorporated rather than becoming lumps of scrambled egg. Check any classic recipe for choux paste if you aren't familiar with the process.

There are recipes for verrines, those appetizers served stacked in little glasses which have become popular in the last few years, which is a plus. There are a number of hot and cold appetizers, but what kept my star rating from dropping lower is that they are interesting, had some new ideas I liked, and were mostly pretty easy to make. I'm always looking for new ideas. OTOH, there were several fried appetizers which consisted of cheesy/creamy mixtures in a coating which are probably more of a challenge than I'm willing to take on. But that's me. ;)

If you like contemporary French cooking or want to learn more about it, this is a good book for the appetizer aspect of it. But do realize that you may have to fill in some blanks for yourself or consult one of the classics to understand more about the processes involved.
