The Exciting Launch of My Latest Book, "Appetizers"

My 85th book “Appetizers” is in bookstores now - and it’s already a #1 best seller on! ”Appetizers” is filled with more than 200-recipes for dips, spreads, small plates, and other delicious party bites.

Earlier this week was the book’s official launch at New York City’s Union Square Barnes & Noble. I joined acclaimed chef, Geoffrey Zakarian, for a casual and very informative conversation about the book, restaurants and entertaining, and how the dining experience has changed over the years. We also discussed what appetizers people enjoy most, and some of our favorite hosting tips. In fact, posted bits of the conversation on its blog - be sure to click on the following link - it’s very funny.’s “What Food Martha Stewart Eats with Her Eyes Closed (& 9 Other Bits of Wisdom She Shared)”

I also conducted a book signing, and enjoyed talking to the very energetic crowd that attended the event. Joining me to celebrate were members of the core team that developed “Appetizers”. A lot of hard work, recipe testing, writing and research went into the creation of this book, and I am so pleased with how it turned out. And, if you're near the Center City Macy's in Philadelphia later today, I'll be doing another book signing, so stop by!

If you haven’t already gotten your copy, you can order “Appetizers” on, and please let me know what you think!! Enjoy these fun photos from our exciting launch and celebration of “Appetizers” - you’ll love this book!
