With millions of vegetarians in the US, and countless more joining the ranks every week, chances are, there is at least one at the dinner table or a cocktail party. Party Food for Vegetarians is packed with 80 easy recipes that are short on complications and long on flavor and style. Elegant menu plans and advice on planning and timing complement a deliciously broad range of recipes. The canapes and cocktail bites chapter features artichoke toasties and aubergine & olive truffles. Heartier main dishes like ricotta & herb dumplings with vodka and porcini butter sauce combine with scrumptious small courses, like no-knead honey seed bread & hot brie fondue or ginger-spiked avocados to build the perfect feast.
