Step aside, main dishes.
True, main dishes are important, but if you want meals that shine with creativity, elegance, or just plain fun - that's what side dishes and appetizers are for! And nobody can put the "wow" into sides and starters better than popular kosher food writers Leah Schapira and Victoria Dwek.
All the recipes are triple-tested, unique - and made with ingredients that are readily available. Every recipe is broken down into easy-to-follow steps, and includes interesting tidbits and "Ahead" tips that help keep you organized. Starters and Sides Made Easy also features a handy Spice Guide, a "Plate It!" section showing unique serving ideas, and "Building Blocks" - essential information for preparing basic rice, potatoes, and roasted vegetables.
For Shabbos and holiday meals, for entertaining, and, yes, for everyday - amaze your guests, your family, and yourself with starters and sides that make the meal.
