From Mexican baked avocado to Hungarian lee so and Turkish bean salad, Yve Menzies has drawn imaginatively on the culinary heritage of five continents. The author began her travels at the age of three weeks and later, as an interpreter and journalist, she lived and worked throughout Europe, the Far East and America. In this unusual and stimulating collection of recipes, Yve Menzies proves that soups and salads are not the only starters. Pates, terrines, quiches, mousses and pasta dishes combine with exotic vegetable and pulse recipes from the Middle East and the Caribbean to make this The Compkte Book of Starters. The author brings together the very best in first courses, recreating such classic dishes as eggs mornay, escargots a la bourguignonne and gruyere soufflé. With easy step-by-step instructions, helpful tips on preparation and presentation, and an astonishing variety of flavours, textures and ingredients, The Complete Book of Starters will inspire any cook. The book contains imperial, metric and American measures. Whether you are cooking for a formal dinner party or a relaxed family lunch, this book will ensure the successful start to a memorable meal.”
