The holidays mean parties. Parties mean hors d'oeuvres. And if you're throwing one of your own (a party, not an hors d'oeuvre), why not think tiny?
And adorablz. Must think adorablz.
In their new book, Tiny Food Party! Bite-Size Recipes for Miniature Meals, photographer Teri Lyn Fisher and food stylist and recipe writer Jenny Park throw out the notion that hors d'oeuvres need to be high-brow. Instead, their appetizer cookbook offers up crazy-quick and simple recipes for cute and clever bite-size munchies of our favorite foods.
Like what? Like Snack-Size Beef Empanadas, Little Sweet Potato Latkes, and Mini Homemade Pop Tarts. (Hee, hee!)
Divided into four chapters focusing on tiny snacks, dinners, desserts, and cocktails, Fisher and Park share photos, recipes, and tips for downsizing your favorite recipes to itty-bitty bites of goodness perfect for your next party.
You can pick up Tiny Food Party! at Changing Hands Bookstore.
