To the French, an aperitif is so much more than a cocktail. It is a rite by which family and friends pass from work to leisure while sipping a mild beverage, enjoying a few savory snacks, and engaging in lively conversation. Aperitif is a gorgeous celebration of a ritual we can now all enjoy. Illustrated with sumptuous photographs taken on location in France, this beautiful volume comes complete with more than fifty recipes for fruit wines, classic aperitifs, and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as the simple but sophisticated finger foods that accompany them. A gift of memories for those who love France and a taste of la bonne vie for those who have never visited, Aperitif is a passport to the glories of the French countryside and the time-honored traditions of its table.
