Editorial Reviews

Review

“In the centuries-old squabble between sweet and salty, I’ve always sided with the latter and simply love this entire compendium. Cynthia Nims has created the definitive handbook to snackage perfectly tailored to the salty dog I am. Complete with history, definitions, and recipes, Salty Snacks is comprehensive, inventive, and destined for much use in the Batali kitchen.”
—Mario Batali, chef, author, and cohost of The Chew
 
“As someone who gave up sugar for salt when I went to cooking school, I applaud the slant of this book. And it gets better—not only are these snacks salty, but they’re also crunchy. So now you too can make your own chips, crackers, pretzels, and more. And the assortment of snacks is wildly creative; even vegetables and grains get dressed up in a snack suit. This book would be a perfect housewarming or holiday gift.”
—Sara Moulton, host of Sara’s Weeknight Meals and author of the Sara’s Kitchenapp

Format: Paperback
There are about 75 recipes in this little cookbook. It contains; crisps and chips, breads and pastries, crackers and savory cookies, meat and seafood, nuts and nibbles vegetables and grains, dips and spreads. All of these fall into the snack category, there are no hearty sides or meals; but these are not the run of the mill snacks either.

There is a good introduction to salty snacks and their evolution in healthfulness. Tools and techniques are covered, and there are pictures of some of the finished recipes. Not all the snacks - even the chips, are fried, some are baked. Most of the recipes do not start from scratch. The tortilla crisps are made from ready-made tortillas, for example. There are shopping resources and an index.

Some of the recipes that we have tried and enjoyed are; portabella chips, anchovy crisps, cheddar ale bread, olive focaccia with lemon - except I left out the lemon, the best crackers (the last 3 recipes are made from scratch), salami chips with grainy mustard dip, toasted walnuts with tart cherries and rosemary. These give you an idea of some of the different kinds of snacks that are included.
This would be a good book for cookbook collectors and snack lovers.

I love to cook but am always at a loss when finding a good go-to appetizer to bring to a party. When I saw that Cynthia Nims was the cookbook author for Salty Snacks, I knew the recipes would be delicious and reliable. I wasn't wrong. What I especially enjoy about this book though are the unusual and unexpected recipes. "Cookies" that are savory for example or meringues that have finely diced popcorn in them for a grown up version of kettle corn in a meringue. While these unusual twists are fun, the more tradiional recipes are also a cut above. The pretzels taste delicious with the addition of mustard. I took them to a party and they were devoured quickly. If you're looking for a great appetizer book and/or enjoy Cynthia Nims recipes, you must get a copy of this one!

You gotta get this one! I loved the snack recipes as well as the condiments. This book really shows you how easy it is to make some of your favorites snacks at home plus offers some new ideas that quickly became favs of mine. My absolute favorites from the book are the Parmesan- Pink Peppercorn crisps (chipes made from grated parmesan with crushed pink peppercorn that offer and irresistible combo) and Salami chips with grainy Mustard. I can eat the mustard in spoonfuls and the salami chips are super thin and crispy.

Everything is fun and pretty easy to make and a heck of a lot healthier than that crap you buy in the store. Even health food snacks. I'm so happy i purchased this book and its got me wanting to find as many homemade snacks as possible.

This is a great recipe book if you are looking for ways to make your own snacks to save money. An added bonus is all the conversions that the author gives for gluten-free options in her recipes. I bought this book for a friend that is gluten intolerant and she has enjoyed it immensely!

I kept checking this out from the library, and hubby said to finally buy it. I think he makes more recipies from this than I do. It's full of great snacks that are easy to make. I'd easily recommend it for your home collection.

This little book packs a punch! It is a great book for snacks and other bites for appetizers or munchies for family or company. It has become a workhorse in my house. I really like so many of the recipes but I have a soft spot for the salami chips with grainy mustard. This book belongs in any cook's library. And, yes, you have more room for another book, especially this one!

The recipes are fairly simple with an unexpected twist. Ordinary ingredients have been dressed up very nicely. Buy this book if you're looking for fantastic appetizers.
