Great Party Dips


From the publisher

Easy to prepare and fun to eat, dips are the perfect party foods. They can be the central spread at a cocktail party, a crowd-pleasing nibble at a potluck, or a no-fuss appetizer at a dinner party. And what Super Bowl or Oscar party would be complete without a bowl of guacamole, cheese dip, or baba ganoush?

In Great Party Dips, author Peggy Fallon offers some 60 fresh, exciting recipes, like Rockin’ Moroccan Salsa, Artichoke-Asiago Dip with Lemon, Wild Mushroom and Walnut Pâté, and Deviled Shrimp with Bacon. You’ll also find all of your favorites here — Hummus with Smoked Paprika, Fresh Spinach Dip with Feta and Dill, and Two-Olive Tapenade with Capers, to name a few — each with a special twist that makes it party-perfect.

There are recipes for cool dips, hot dips, salsas, spreads, pâtés, and even recipes for festive dessert dips. Best of all, most of these recipes are so simple, even a novice cook can pass for a pro.

You’ll also find recipes here for dippers like homemade Pita Chips, Crostini, Tortilla Chips, and Won Ton Crisps. The book also includes savvy tips on how to serve dips in attractive and enticing ways, figure out how many dips you’ll need for a party, and prepare perfect vegetable crudités.
