Review by Library Journal Reviews

Food writer Manning (The Farm to Table Cookbook: The Art of Eating Locally) shares recipes for crackers, chips, and dips that are less expensive and (when prepared correctly) more delicious than store-bought snacks. Her many sweet and savory varieties will appeal to a wide range of tastes but can be complicated to prepare. Even "easy crackers" require readers to grind spices, deep-fry, and purchase unconventional ingredients. Still, this handsome volume offers gourmets an opportunity to create uniquely show-stopping snacks. VERDICT Fancier and more technically precise than Lee E. Cart's The Cracker Book: Artisanal Crackers for Every Occasion, this is a great niche title for readers interested in homemade crackers. [Page 127]. (c) Copyright 2013.

Recipes and tips are for bakers of all skill levels and tastes, with formulas for vegan, gluten-free, and whole-grain crisps. This adorable book is timed perfectly for the cracker-making trend and makes the ideal gift for the baker or entertainer who takes pride in making everything from scratch.
