SHOWSTOPPING PARTY STARTERS
Amp up the glitz of your Oscar viewing party with these impressive (and easy-to-make!) bites from the chefs at Cook’s Illustrated
On Oscar night, we love rolling out the red carpet and giving our party guests the star treatment — starting by serving a variety of delicious hors d’ouevres. And this year our spread will be extra special, thanks to the chefs at Cook’s Illustrated. In their new cookbook, All Time Best Appetizers, they show how to use simple ingredients to create crowd-pleasing starters in minutes. The key: “A one-bite appetizer needs to be packed with flavor without going overboard,” explain the chefs, who balance indulgent ingredients (like bacon) with fresh crisp elements (like chives).
Try these bites to rack up rave reviews at your viewing party!
