From The Publisher: 
The authors of the immensely popular HOT series put their taste for international flavors and visual flair on the fast track to quick, easy-to-prepare appetizers with dazzling results. Each of the 100 recipes in FAST APPETIZERS, from spring rolls to pizza to caviar, can be made in a flash, most in under 15 minutes. Whether you're hosting a cocktail party or an intimate dinner, Carpenter and Sandison deliver maximum flavor in minimum time. The first title in a fresh new series from Ten Speed's most popular cooking duo. As with the HOT series, bonus pages full of tips for quick cooking and presentation enliven this book. Includes dramatic color photos in Teri Sandison's signature style.

The book's dazzling photographs of finished creations as well as its clear, simple instructions should make entertaining a breeze.
—Central Coast Adventures Winter 2000
Well over 100 fresh recipes for appetizers neatly packaged in a slim 10 x 10 cookbook is a pleasant thing indeed.
—Sally D. Ketchum, ForeWord August 1999
