not for the novice!

I received this book as a Christmas gift a few days ago and have not been able to put it down since! I agree with the writer from California that it is certainly not for the new cook, but as a part-time caterer, I have finally found the ultimate source for entertaining. There are no definite cooking times listed, and it's taken for granted that the reader is familiar with basic techniques (like for preparing pastries and mousse). If you're up to the challenge, the results will be spectacular and your friends will be amazed. The photographs are beautiful and inspiring!

An excellent book if you are in the catering business.

The Book of Hors D'Oeuvres and Canapes is an excellent book for the professional caterer, but is certainly not meant for the average or even above average cook. When I received the book, I was entranced by the stunning food presentations. On closer inspection I realized that the work involved to actually create the dishes would overwhelm anyone who had not gone to cooking school. Also, the portions are huge. Each recipe makes an average of 60 hors d'oeuvres or canapes. If the author ever makes a book for the lay person, I would be the first to buy it. But I will leave this one for the pros.
