Synopses & Reviews
An aperitif is so much more than a cocktail. It is a way of passing from work to leisure while sipping a mild beverage, enjoying a few savory snacks, and sharing time with friends. Now available in paperback, the IACP award--winner Aperitif is a gorgeous celebration of this popular ritual. Illustrated with sumptuous photographs taken on location in France, home of the aperitif, this beautiful volume comes complete with more than 50 recipes for fruit wines, classic aperitifs, and nonalcoholic drinks, as well as the simple but sophisticated finger foods that accompany them. A gift of memories for those who love France, Aperitif offers a taste of la bonne vie for those who enjoy nothing more than raising a glass in the company of friends.
