750 Best Appetizers Book Giveaway

I love to entertain although I don't do it as much as I would like to. I have many cookbooks in my kitchen that I use when cooking. I love to pore through them gazing at the beautiful pictures of savory appetizers, scrumptious desserts, and fantastic entrees. I love to experiment in making new dishes on a regular basis.

750 Best Appetizers is a book written by Judith Finlayson & Jordan Wagman. Throw those boring old appetizer cookbooks away, this one will blow all of the others out of the water!


This is the perfect appetizer book for any occasion. If you're starting to plan your Christmas or Thanksgiving menu in advance, please consider 750 Best Appetizers. Do you feel as though you always make the same appetizers or hors d'oeuvres? Why not spice things up? Create a luscious seafood crepe or cheesy dip to really get your party or event going. The recipes are easy to follow and the pictures are gorgeous.

The book is structured to cover a broad range of options. There are 16 chapters built around specific types of dishes, such as dips and spreads, or specific ingredients, such as fish and seafood or cheese. The book is also categorized by presentation, since it’s an integral component to appetizers, so you’ll find chapters like wraps and rolls.

A tray of appetizers always seems celebratory, and there is nothing like home-cooked food to make people feel welcome. Use this book to create hors d’oeuvres that will delight your family and friends — then relax and enjoy the party yourself.

My favorite recipes in the book are pancetta-wrapped scallops and walnut dusted cheese balls, they will sure to be a real crowd pleaser.



Be creative, try a new recipe and wow your guests!

  150. My mom used to collect old hosting books which I thought was fun to read but I didn't think I was one of those people who would host parties. As a recent college grad, I started doing it myself and realized how much I love entertaining at home with parties, get togethers, bbqs.

    I would love to own this cookbook because I don't have a cookbook for appetizers and would to learn how to make different ones instead of the same ones.

    My next event is a cocktail party. I have two wonderful friends who will be playing the role of bartender. I'd like to have a variety of appetizers to go with the cocktails.
