    Book Description
    Dips began as a uniquely American phenomenon. They arrived on the party scene after World War II and exploded in popularity when someone mixed Lipton's dry onion soup mix with sour cream and dubbed it California Dip. This still-irresistible mixture helped turn dips into ubiquitous party food. Good dips rely on punchy flavors and Kirby uses a range of them, such as garlic mixed with sharp cheeses in Sherried Cheddar and Blue Cheese Spread. You will also love the deep-roasted resonance in eggplant-based Baba Ganoush and the kick in East-West Wasabi and Mustard Mayonnaise. When you want to skip the fat, check out Kirby's 10 salsas. They combine chopped vegetables or fruit with hot chiles and a shot of tartness, as in Watermelon or Roasted Vegetable Salsa. Dips are made to be scooped up or spread on something tasty. Kirby helpfully provides four recipes for dippers to replace store-bought chips. Her Nutty Tortilla Chips are a nice surprise. So are the "Almost Instant" recipes you can throw together. With Kirby's help, all your parties will sparkle. --Dana Jacobi
