This is the first revision of a book that has become an accepted leader in its special field since its publication in 1925. It has been greatly enlarged. The division is according to use, so that it is possible to find all kinds of pierced savories .. . first course hors d'oeuvre . . . cocktail accompaniments . . . centerpiece and platter arrangements -- almost at a glance. Each section is then subdivided according to ingredient.
A general discussion of hors d'oeuvre and their preparation, and comprehensive lists of ingredients, garnishes and flavored butters, usher the alert hostess into the main delights of the recipes themselves.
