When you think about dips, what usually comes to mind is the classic party dish in a bowl surrounded by crackers or potato chips of various descriptions or, for the more vegetally inclined, chopped up sticks of carrots, cucumber and celery. Dips are not just party food; they can form the basis of a snack or light meal in and of themselves.
There is nothing better then a bowl of hummus, taramasalata or some dip that involved cottage cheese and sour cream - or both - and a fresh baguette or disc of Lebanese bread gradually getting torn into pieces, dunked into said dip and then devoured, bite by bite. This book gives you all the classics recipes for dips and spreads, with simple and easy instructions on how to make it seem easy and fuss free. With every dip and spread recipe that would suit all your guests.
