Appetizers : Culinary Signature Collection, Volume IV

Each year, more than 600,000 passengers board Holland America’s luxury ships to enjoy thrilling adventures and the fine cuisine for which the cruise line is renowned. Passengers also take advantage of cooking classes and demonstrations held daily at the ships’ culinary centers. In this book, Holland America’s master chef, Rudi Sodamin, presents more than one hundred recipes, so guests can prepare at home the favorite first courses they taste on board. The dishes included range from the perfect hors d’oeuvre to pass at an elegant cocktail party, such as smoked salmon rosette on pumpernickel; to a first course that works well on a buffet, such as Tuscan bread salad with seared tuna; to an appetizer for a family gathering, such as penne with sausage and mozzarella. Appetizers will keep you entertaining in high style.
