Library Journal Review

It can be difficult to come up with new ideas for hors d'oeuvres, and any cook who entertains even infrequently will welcome this collection of mostly easy, elegant recipes. Duffy is the culinary editor of New York magazine, and many of these come from the chefs and caterers featured in her articles. There are a few standards like hummus and guacamole, but most of the recipes are both imaginative and relatively uncomplicated. Recommended for any collection where entertaining books are popular.
