Small Bites, Big Nights

Seductive Little Plates for Intimate Occasions and Lavish Parties


From the publisher

Whether he’s setting the scene at his acclaimed Table 8 restaurants in Los Angeles and Miami, rocking the audience on “Iron Chef America,” or designing the menus for Hollywood hotspots, chef Govind Armstrong knows how to create menus for spectacular occasions of all sizes.

Now, in his first cookbook, he offers sophisticated and sexy small plates and cocktails that will make guests feel instantly at home. Readers will learn how to wow a happening crowd with Seared Kobe Beef on Mini Yorkshire Puddings or transform a living room into a seductive lounge with bites like Grilled Cheese with Pulled Shortrib and Pickled Onion.
