Appetizers served with a beverage set the mood for the whole party. They are ice-breakers, curtain-raisers, conservation-pieces, curiosity arousers. They fill the gap made by an unaccountable delay in dinner. They tantalize, tempt and delight. Above all, they should what the appetite and not satisfy it. This book offers hundreds of committee-tested ideas to help make the hour before dinner a pleasant one. Every time you entertain, try a few! First published in 1965, "Appetizers" followed our successful first book, "Stay for Lunch". Third and fourth in the series came "A Party A Month" and "Grandma Wore An Apron". This book "Appetizers" was revised and reprinted just before it was featured in the December 1976 issue of "Ladies' Home Journal". The resulting mail orders (even, from Sweden, Guam, Pakistan, Brazil, Spain and Indo-China!) were so overwhelming that early in 1977 we are going into our sixth printing.
