We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book, French Appetizers by Marie Asselin.

Marie is also the author of Simply Citrus which I reviewed last year and the voice behind the food blog, Food Nouveau. In her latest title, she invites us to enjoy the French ritual of L'apéro by bringing a little bit of France into our home and taking time to savor the good things in life by living, eating, and drinking well.

L'apéro consists of before dinner drinks served with finger foods and small bites. This collection of appetizers is perfect to serve for L'apéro, happy hour, or to give a lunch box or picnic basket that "something extra-special." Fresh, modern, and versatile French-inspired nibbles and bites, from basic tapenades and hummus, to savory cakes, quiches, tartlets, mini sandwiches, soups, skewers, and sweet treats are perfect as a prelude to dinner, or even in place of an evening meal. 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.

I particularly love the savory cakes and tarts chapter which shares bakes that are perfect for brunch. Marie's chapter on sweets is pure perfection with recipes such as Roasted fig and aniseed financiers and Chamomile lemon tartlets. Beautiful photography and Marie's special touch with flavors makes this a must have book.
