Have you ever accompanied an evening of game-playing with a bowl of salty chips or slabs of pizza? If so, you know that greasy fingers can be a distraction, with players interrupting the game to grab napkins or even lick their fingersa€”immediately before grabbing the communal spinner. Gourmet Game Night has the solution: instead of relying on conventional convenience snacks and standbys, youa€™ve got imaginative, homemade options; instead of greasy hands and game pieces, youa€™ve got mess-free, bite-sized snacks. Cookbook writer, magazine contributor, and culinary blogger Cynthia Nims offers inventive alternatives that make hands-clean dining easy, including: a€c Edible wrappers around savory centers (Shrimp Cakes in Shiso Leaves, page 66) a€c Bite-sized versions of unwieldy classics for easy grabbing between moves (Caesar Dip with Big Croutons and Romaine, page 18) a€c Edible bases to support tender ingredients (Tuna Tartare on Daikon Slices, page 58) a€c Innovative mini containers such as shot glasses for liquid fare (Chilled Avocado Soup with Roasted Poblano Cream, page 112) a€c Neat sweet treats paired with gooey dippers (Brown Butter Pound Cake with Caramel Dip, page 34) a€c And of course, party-friendly drinks poured by the pitcherful (Pomegranate-Mint Fizz, page 138) Cynthia Nimsa€™s creative and contemporary recipes will liven up any event where free hands are of the essence, whether youa€™re gathering friends for a poker night, rolling those dice for a board-game party, spicing up your bridge club, planning a family Scrabble tournament, or impressing your book club or knitting group! Indeed, Gourmet Game Night proves that you dona€™t need a fancy night on the town to have fun; instead, gather your friends for satisfying small bitesa€”and hopefully a winning streaka€”at home. From the Trade Paperback edition.Bite-Sized, Mess-Free Eating for Board-Game Parties, Bridge Clubs, Poker Nights, Book Groups, and More Cynthia Nims ... the way-back machine: remember Hi Ho Cherry-O?
