Tastefully Small – Savory Bites: Easy Sophisticated Hors D'oeuvres for Every Occasion

Forget the entrée.

According to CBS Market Watch, couples with a taste for gourmet food can spend more than 25 percent of their total wedding budget on food and alcohol. But there is no rule that you must serve a formal entrée at your reception, especially if it is not dinnertime, said Charli Penn of the Wedding Channel.

There are many ways you can cut wedding food costs — without making it noticeable to guests. Serving hors d’oeuvres will keep your guests mingling and satisfied, and will save you from the traditional high-priced entrée, said Penn. But how do you choose your menu of mini foods?

Tastefully Small: Savory Bites has an assortment of recipes for appetizers that are flavorful and easy to prepare. With more than fifty original morsels, every recipe has both bite-size and full-size versions of the meat, vegetable, fish, and pastry-based hors d’oeuvres. This book is filled with tips, flavor substitutions, and easy instructions, as well as a full-color interior to give you the best selection for any gathering. With a menu from Savory Bites, you will be sure to impress your guests and keep your wedding budget in check.
