COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY FOOD NETWORK


Grab a light drink
and a bite, and enjoy cocktail hour, the French way.

For the
French, the fleeting interlude between a long workday and the evening
meal to come is not meant to be hectic or crazed. Instead, that time is a
much needed chance to pause, take a breath, and reset with light drinks
and snacks. Whether it's a quick affair before dashing out the door to
your favorite Parisian bistro or a lead-up to a more lavish
party, Apéritif is about kicking off the night,
rousing the appetite, and doing so with the carefree spirit of
connection and conviviality. Apéritif celebrates
that easygoing lifestyle with simple yet stylish recipes for both
classic and modern French apéritif-style cocktails, along with
French-inspired bites and hors d'oeuvres. 
Keeping true to
the apéritif tradition, you'll find cocktail recipes that use
lighter, low-alcohol spirits, fortified wines, and bitter liqueurs. The
impressive drinks have influences from both Old World and New, but are
always low fuss and served barely embellished—an easy feat to pull
off for the relaxed host at
home. 
Apéritif also offers recipes for
equally breezy bites, such as Radishes with Poppy Butter,
Gougères, Ratatouille Dip, and Buckwheat-Sel Gris Crackers. For
evenings that are all about ease and approachability without sacrificing
style or flavor, Apéritif makes drinking and
entertaining at home as effortless, fun, and effervescent as the
offerings themselves

it is weird to read a book about a tradition that the author didn't grow up with and is not part of their culture. She also made up the recipes, they are not classic aperitif recipes. It's like reading a book about American culture from a Russian who has lived her for a few years. I would not have bought if i knew the author was not french.

Lots of cocktail recipes, divided by seasons, and some nibbles recipes. The first section, introducing the booze you might need for the recipes, could be better organized. Is this actually "cocktail hour the French way"? I can't tell from this book, which is almost all recipes, but probably not so much. But I did find two other books also titled Aperitif (reviews to come), so no prob.

This book gives an overview of French drinks and how to make them.

It's broken down by weather/drink type (i.e. hot or cold) with a few food recipes at the end. There are some nice photos too. The book is nice but doesn't have anything an online search wouldn't turn up.

Concise, informative, with simple recipes easily followed. I highly recommend mixing up an Expat Americano. I enjoyed the introductory section highlighting key ingredients for an audience likely unfamiliar with Lillet and other fortified wines.

Scanned. Several interesting ideas, but more suited to spring, summer and fall drinks. Also, uses core items we don't own: red and white verjus, lillet, etc.
