Finger food is made to be shared with friends, but with an emphasis on simplicity and taste. Fresh ingredients create Eastern treats from dim sum to sushi; a cool plate of antipasto is perfect for a summer lunch; and simple but mouthwatering tapas and meze can be passed around at a party. With over 600 full-color photographs, we see that finger food can be exciting and a bit risky — even the most cautious will try a new taste sensation if it’s only one bite! But, there is one thing that all finger food should be — utterly irresistible. (amazon)
