Hosting happy hour or having a cocktail party is the breeziest way to have people over: Gather a collection of nibbles from your local gourmet store, add in one or two homemade bites, and you’ll leave your guests happy and full. You won’t end the evening wiped out from your kitchen efforts—and you won’t have a mountain of dishes to wash, either!
Created by award-winning recipe developer and experienced happy hour host, Marie Asselin, this eBook features 27 irresistible appetizer recipes, including dips, snacks, and spectacular bites inspired by French and Italian cooking and more delightful cuisines from around the world.
