Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Williams-Sonoma, purveyor of choice gourmet products and kitchenware, has also created a collection of succinct yet comprehensive cookbooks. Part of the series, Hors d'Oeuvre offers 40 all-occasion recipes that reflect the company's signature good taste. Its impressively chosen tidbit range encompasses classics such as Deviled Eggs with Capers and New Potatoes with Caviar and Crème Fraîche, as well as simple bites like Tomato and Basil Bruscetta, and also includes sections on canapés and dips, such as the must-try Thai Guacamole. Wrapped and skewered mouthfuls are also represented with the tempting likes of Lamb and Artichoke Heart Spedini and Smoky Shrimp with Garlic-Parsley Mojo.

Accompanied by color photos that show the hors d'oeuvres in all their glory, the completely doable recipes will appeal to a wide range of cooks. Throughout, sidebars (like "Deveining Shrimp") offer useful information on techniques and ingredients; a glossary and basics section are also helpful. Though small in size, the book provides an inclusive store of superior recipes and instruction. --Arthur Boehm

These recipes possess all the innovation that keeps Williams and Sonoma not only a thriving business, but a virtual "current events" of the food world. Who else would've thought up something as crazy and wonderful as tuna tartar on potato chips? Or resurrected that old chestnut of using pureed anchovies in a salad dressing, knowing that the fishy taste always becomes obscured, while the fish's salty tang brings out the best in the rest of the herbs? I had never owned a cookbook by this operation before, but I have often copied or cut out recipes published by the gourmets of this company (whom I've come to think of as trusted friends) in their catalogue.

I have never been able to fathom the generosity and courage it has taken for these people to freely give away great recipes in every mail order issue and believe - rightly - that customers will buy products and reward their efforts. I am glad to be an example of the kind of consumer they aimed for. The recipes in this book are worth the effort and extremely tasty! The many photos tempt the reader to try new flavors and ways of preparing food. I am so excited to find that there are so many cookbooks out in publication so that I and my family can acquire and give them to one another for many years to come.

Loved this book. Great pictures. Love the side captions. Wiliam Sonoma does it right with these books. I own the entire collection and plan on having them for a very long time. Hopefully one day will be able to say I made every recipe in the book which seems possible. Some people my not like the limited number of recipes but I feel this is a great example of quality over quantity. Somebody really put some love in this book and it shows. Everything I have made so far has been great. Once you buy one you will want them all.

Beautiful pictures. Useful recipes, unlike the Williams Sonoma "Hors d'oeuvre and appetizers" book in the Kitchen library series. Recipes look quick, simple, easy. Can't wait to try some of them. They all look delicious.

This is a visually beautiful book, elegant, 5 star recipes, which I have displayed in my kitchen. I already owned it, but just one problem--I had inscribed the inside cover with my full (ex-husband's) name. Just didn't want that staring in my face every time I sourced recipes from this. Happened to find this brand new replacement copy on Amazon, and am so happy I can now dump the icky copy. Also, really love cooking from it!

One word: bruschetta. That one recipe has made so many appearances on my dining room table, it's almost embarrassing. I did make one change and toast the bread in butter instead of oil, but the tomato mixture really sells it. I even make it in the winter with ripe hothouse tomatoes. I know, I know, I should eat seasonally, but gosh, I love that bruschetta.

I adore the books in this series by Williams Sonoma, and I never seem to have a problem with the recipes. They mostly include easy to find items, and there are extra blurbs about little-known techniques or ingredients. The pictures take up a full page, and they are absolutely gorgeous. I recommend this series to every cook I know.

I was looking for some exceptional recipes for appetizers and hors d'oeuvre and this book delivered. So far I have made about a dozen of the items - most are simple and non complicated. About the only thing that creates some difficulty is shopping for some of the more exotic ingredients and spices. I found that substituting didn't mar the recipe or the taste. this book is only about appetizers and hors d'oeuvres and not much else. I can compare this book with the New York Times book on appetizers from a while back - fun and filling. It is one book of many published by William Sonoma - the only drawback is library shelf space. Although it is slim - the entire series takes up space. The book is new, stylish and well photo'd so you get a sample of what the dish looks like. A good buy.
