These are exactly the kinds recipes I was looking to make. Decorative and using a wide variety of ingredients. You'll be using so much more than just cheese, seasonings and mixed nuts. They are the kinds of recipes that make everyone stop and go "Oh that's so neat!". Also, while the holiday cheese balls are the ones I'm most interested in, there are far more than just Christmas or Easter recipes inside. There are wine cheese balls, veggie cheese balls, and even a whole chapter of desert balls, like the Oreo Cheesecake Truffle ball. All having ornate and fun plating designs. The recipes in this book are very fun and creative. They're sure to be a hit any time you serve them.
This collection of sweet and savory are easy to make, and some of them are in fun shapes. The flavors are fantastic- instead of the super salty, unreasonably orange balls from cocktail parties past these are made using real cheeses with seasonings and toppings that combine well for good flavors. Like the Buffalo Chicken ball uses buffalo chicken sauce and chicken mixed with 3 flavors of cheese including blue cheese. Lots of great savory recipes that will be a regular for my family, and the sweet recipes make for interesting desserts that will invite conversation.
They are all very easy to make, and all the recipes so far have been a hit with my family. Tonight I plan to make the chocolate/peanut butter ball. I also really like the quick tips for dressing up goat cheese logs.
I tried only one, so far. The recipe used port wine (which I happened to have). It was really easy and the flavor was quite enjoyable.
This book is going to stay on my shelf. I am sure I will used it quite a bit. Ideal for small gatherings ... both as a host or as a guest.
The recipes were my main interest in this book and they are solid. There are combinations I would never have dreamed-up along with some twists on standards that are delicious. I prepared four cheese ball recipes and was pleased with all of them. Cranberry Cheddar Ball has complex flavors and is really good. The recipe calls for cranberry chutney, something I did not have on-hand, so I used some cranberry relish that I did have on hand. Still sweet and savory so the substitution worked well. If neither item is in the pantry I wouldn’t hesitate to use whole berry canned cranberry sauce (recipe calls for 2 tablespoons) with a half-teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, and a tiny pinch of ground all-spice half teaspoon added which should achieve something close to the original.
Next I prepared the Tricolor Pesto and Sun-Dried Tomato Terrine. The pesto used in the recipe can either be store bought or homemade.Read more ›
