The Kitchenista's Appetizer Handbook

Sunday, March 27, 2016


My second cookbook is now available for purchase! This is a project I've been working on for a few months so I'm excited to finally release it and get these recipes into your hands. When I asked for ideas for ebook themes, my followers requested appetizers by an overwhelming majority. I wasn't sure how to tackle such a broad subject, so I dove in head first, cooking all of the appetizers I could dream up. Some worked, some didn't, but it was a fun and eye-opening experience. I started this project shortly after finishing my Thanksgiving ebook. I'd been so wrapped up in my focus on structured holiday dinner recipes around that time that it became a really liberating thing to just make whatever the hell I wanted to eat, regardless of how it fit into a bigger menu. Little by little I chiseled away at my list of things to try, perfect and document. After more than a few bumps along the way, I am so proud to have a completed ebook that is full of beautiful photography and recipes I'm excited to share.


There are more than twenty detailed appetizer recipes, along with some spice blends, condiments and sauces that will really help to make your dishes come to life if you'd like to go all out. But it's flexible, for those of you who prefer to utilize more store bought ingredients for some extra help. I've dedicated an entire section to sharing my experience on things like specialty ingredients and cookware tools you'll need to get the job done right. Sprinkled in between all the recipes are my tips and secrets to creating great appetizers.



Thank you so much to everybody who has already, or will support this project! I'm already hard at work on the next ebook, and your purchases help to fund future projects. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns with your download or about the recipes. I'll do my best to get back to you as quickly as possible. Also, for those who have asked - yes, I am hoping to also release this as a printed book. Details to come later next month, it takes awhile to receive proof copies and handle any final editing, so sit tight! I'll leave you here with a few more shots from the book. Happy cooking!
