Book Overview

Grazing is an enchanting way to eat. It means skipping from dish to dish, tasting different things without committing to a single one. It's about creating multiple dishes that work together as a meal, that all share a theme, an aesthetic. When she entertains, or even pulls together a quick dinner for just two, food stylist Suzanne Lenzer enjoys this tapas-style of eating--and with her guidance, you can too.

When it comes to making small plates at home, start with cheese and charcuterie, but then combine this classic with a few easy dishes that make a meal special. Try your hand at fun, fast recipes like chickpea fries with Meyer lemon-scented aioli; roasted beet tartare with cheese and pistachios; kale, spinach, and Pecorino pizza slivers; sardine bruchetta with fennel and preserved lemons; scallop and plum ceviche with tarragon; and lemon-lavender posset--to name just a few.

Making delicious, beautiful dishes and snacks for grazing, whether for two or twelve, doesn't have to be difficult or time-consuming. Graze is full of tips to help you prepare healthy, wholesome, and appetizing food without spending hours in the kitchen.

   The most pretentious cookbook I have ever encountered
The recipes are good and the photography is excellent, Morgenthau said. Half the recipes are prefaced with longwinded scenes of personal anecdotes which obscure the real details. The story of this cookbook is too formulaic—I'm not this hoighty-toighty woman, I am a more subdued, attainable elitist. I would not gripe about this if the actual recipes were easier to sift through from the narrative portion of the book.
   new way to entertain
Pauley, one of the book's co-authors, said: "I am very happy with the book. I love having people in but I am honestly bit out of the habit of cooking, Mr Hughes said. This is a wonderful solution and done nicely, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California. They love to mingle and then have a glass of wine, so they don't have to spend the day shopping another table and setting the rest. Yes, I am sold.
   Lacking the luster that I expected.
I have to say, I'm underwhelmed by this book. When I heard the news, I was expecting more. There are about 3-4 recipes that have photos of the originals. The pictures are beautiful, but I would not call them beautiful. Had I been able to view this book personally, I would have purchased it.
   vegetarian recipes beautiful presentation
A beautifully photographed book of great recipes. It was my daughter who really likes to cook. I can't wait to give it to her, Tunick said. The recipes are just that: right up her alley. Healthy vegetarian recipes.
   It’s not your typical recipe book, it’s an art form!
A great book, Gillian. Makes me hungry, Mr. D. If you are coming here for simple recipes you might find a couple but don't buy the book for that reason. It's the first book I've seen of this type. It reminds me of an architecture-style book rather than a cookbook. I have a million books to sell, and now I have one for food! Totally enriches eating experience, I dont use it for recipes but more for pairing and food combination ideas, inspiration to eat more wholesome. Pairing foods is a true expert in this area. This is her candid approach to eating and I really love how each of her foods has descriptions and reasons behind why she loves them so much, and personal experiences that tie her to meals, she writes. I'm so happy to find a book about truly food from a person who is an artist as well, Raymond said. A great intersection of two great books, Robert Frist said. I love the new look of the magazine.
   Amazing book!
I love the attitude of the author and the recipes are inspiring and informative, Morgenthau said. The whole concept, somewhere between small platestapasappetizers and fine dining, is, I find, intriguing. Very glad I bought it.
We're delighted that Suzanne Lenzer has given us a taste of small plates. She has provided stories to accompany the recipes, too. The pictures accompanying the recipes are stunning.
   Interesting easy recipes and beautiful photography
This book is by far the best. Easy to follow, the recipes are simple and yet appear impressive. The photos are stunning. I love the colorful language the author uses and her storytelling, and best of all everything I've made so far from it is delicious! Great idea! It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Good concept, but some ideas get overused
Like the concept and some of the ideas, but at other times it seems that the author started with a beautiful photo and then worked back from that point, rather than starting with the ingredients or the meal idea. There are lots of photos and ideas featuring figs, even though it's something that most people might realistically buy once in a blue moon.
   A cookbook to make you smile...
The easiest and most delicious recipes are those that are made with just a few ingredients. Probably some or many of them you already have in your repertoire, such as slow roasted tomatoes. Some are also good with lime and salt, making them perfect for smoothies. Granted, it's not really a recipe, but it's just a perfect thing in a very imperfect world, because what truly grabbed me in her book was her writing, and the way she introduced her simple but well-balanced recipes, she said. A cookbook that makes you smile all the way through it.. is my kind of cookbook. It's just that the Provencal-Style Spiced Nuts are so good. I've made some versions of this but hers hits the perfect balance of sweet and spice.
