Fine Cooking Appetizers

Fine Cooking Appetizers: 200 Recipes for Small Bites with Big Flavor By the editors and contributors to Fine Cooking, Taunton Press, 2010. Paperback. $20; 252 pages

200 approachable ideas for appetizers in a no-nonsense volume that, without fanfare, gets down to business. No pages of philosophy, just recipes, organized by how the food is handled: passed and plated, spread and scooped, stuffed and skewered. Wonder how much fat is in that feta dip? Every recipe has nutritional information.
