L’apéro consists of before-dinner drinks served with finger foods and small bites. This collection of French appetizers is perfect to serve for happy hour, as a prelude to dinner, or even in place of an evening meal. Add French appetizers to a picnic basket or a lunch box to give them something très special!
In French Appetizers, you’ll find fresh, modern, and versatile French-inspired appetizers and small servings, from basic tapenades and hummus, to savory cakes, quiches, tartlets, mini sandwiches, soups, skewers, and sweet treats. Many recipes include simple formulas to make several versions of a single recipe so that you are only limited by your own taste buds and creativity.
With French Appetizers, enjoy the French ritual of l’apéro by taking time to savor the good things in life by living, eating, and drinking well. Santé!
