"This is not a book about how to mix drinks. It′s about what to eat after the drinks are mixed, poured, or uncapped. These recipes are stress–free, easy, and meant to be made and eaten casually. Their appeal lies in their robust flavors, serving simplicity, and the way the recipes complement beverages. They′re the same type of tasty nibbles found at all the best bars––and they can look and taste just as tempting, even when made at home." ––From Great Bar Food at Home
