Publisher Comments:

Fans of Cindy Pawlcyn's Mustards Grill have been making meals out of her sampler-size starters for years. In Big Small Plates, Cindy brings home the biggest trend in eating out, with generously scaled recipes that promise less fuss and more flavors than traditional appetizers. The wide-ranging collection of universally appealing recipes spans soups, finger foods, salads, scoopables, and even sweets designed to satisfy big appetites as well as grazers. An alternative to conventional, varietyless main-course cooking, Cindy's small plate recipes deliver the inspiration and reliability that make this new way of eating — and entertaining — practical at home.
  • A cookbook of 150 sampler-size recipes from Mustards Grill, Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen, and Pawlcyn's home repertoire, in her signature all-American style with Californian and global influences.
  • Includes 150 gorgeous food, ingredient, and location photos.
  • Pawlcyn's previous book Mustards has sold more than 60,000 copies.
  • Mustards won the James Beard award for Best American Cookbook in 2002 and was nominated for the IACP Cookbook of the Year Award.

Review:

"In her newest (after Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook), Pawlcyn explores her love of appetizers and small dishes, emphasizing foods from Spain, Mexico, and Central and South America and including recipes from the her restaurants, past and present. She breaks down chapters into playful categories: 'Sticks, Picks, and with Fingers,' for example, focuses on foods meant to be eaten by hand, Pawlcyn's admittedly favorite way to eat. Foods served on toast, tortillas or shells appear under 'On a Raft,' while 'Bowls and Spoons' features soups and stews (such as Mussels and Clams with Andouille Sausage in Tangerine Broth). Throughout, Pawlcyn favors seasonal ingredients, be it a recipe for Grilled Radicchio and Scallions with Black Olives or Crispy Fried Rabbit with Dijon-Chervil Sauce. While some dishes, like Pan Roasted Hazelnuts and Chile Garlic Peanuts, are straightforward, others, such as Salt Cod Cakes with Garlic Aioli, require a bit of work. But Pawlcyn is unapologetic: 'When it comes to cooking, the little extra you do makes a huge difference, so sweat the details.' But the desserts (Baked Peach Crisps, Oranges and Smashed Cherries) are delightfully simple, and the menu suggestions at the end, categorized by season, will inspire any home cook. (Sept.)"
