Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0688155723, Paperback)Might as well face the music now: at some time in your life, you will find yourself assembling a Goat Cheese Log with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Basil. Guests are approaching. Time is running low. At some time in your life you are going to need a book like Susan Epstein's A Little Something. You don't want to have to think up stuff like Baked Clam Dip Loaf on your own, do you? Let Susan do it for you, with more than 150 recipes packed into this handy reference. Put this book on the shelf, keep your pantry and freezer stocked, and you can handle anything from an avalanche of hungry teenagers to a ponderously boring book club.
Susan Epstein gets right in, rolls up her sleeves, and produces food you might even want to eat. (When confronted with a wide choice of hors d'oeuvres, how many do you actually try and enjoy?) She doesn't just settle for party nibbles, chips, and dips--she goes right for the throat of late-night hunger spasms with such treats as chopped eggs, mushrooms, and onions on black bread; an open-faced roast beef "sandwich" (it calls for Middle Eastern flat bread); crispy onion rings with a spicy dipping sauce; four versions of nachos; and romaine burritos with blue cheese, chicken, apples, and pecans.
Epstein's theory is that there are many occasions other than parties when a little something is just what the doctor ordered, something just the other side of usual fare. Her book, A Little Something, delivers while leaving snooty pretensions behind on the curb. --Schuyler Ingle
