Description: Designed for busy people who love to entertain, Food Made Fast Small Plates is a guide to preparing quick, delicious dishes for any occasion. Each recipe can be completed in three steps or fewer, using a handful of readily available ingredients that showcase distinctive, appealing flavors. You'll also find attractive ways to present small plates to your guests. With this book as your guide, you can prepare appetizers for a casual gathering or an elegant party.
Many of the recipes, such as Thai Lettuce Cups and Ricotta, Fig, and Prosciutto Bruschetta, take less than 20 minutes from start to finish, making them ideal choices for impromptu get togethers. Others, such as Crostini with Steak and Horseradish Cream, Shrimp Skewers with Basil Oil, and Potato Pancakes with Smoked Salmon, can be ready to serve guests in 30 minutes or less. In the final chapter, you'll find recipes that yield large enough batches to be used as the foundation for two or three different dishes. You can make a Tomato and Fontina Tart tonight and have enough savory tart dough left over for preparing Mushroom and Mascarpone Tartlets or Savory Beef Empanadas.
You'll also discover suggestions for planning seasonal menus, tips for using handy shortcuts, and guidelines for keeping a well-stocked pantry that will save you precious time and make you a faster- and smarter-cook.
