On the upside, as usual with the American Women's Weekly books, this is beautifully produced and there is a photograph for most of the recipes (there are eight at the end of the book which don't have photos to accompany recipes). The recipes are easy to follow and are accompanied by details of preparation and cooking time plus fat, carbohydrate, protein and fibre content and, where needed, helpful notes. There is an excellent glossary and a conversion chart.
On the downside if you are UK-based and don't happen to live in a part of the country which has a plethora of shops selling specialized products you may have difficulty sourcing the ingredients for a large percentage of these recipes. Examples of such ingredients are wombok, wonton wrappers, rice paper sheets, figs, quince, enoki mushrooms, sumac, gow gee wrappers, mirin, kecap manis, baba ganoush, bocconcini cheese, cabanossi. Alternatives can be found for some, of course, but not all.
The recipes are divided into: snacks on the run, bites, skewers, dips, sandwiches & rolls, sandwiches & wraps, and melts & bruschetta.
Examples of the snacks are pork dumplings, orange and honey nut mix, corn cakes with avocado mash, pea and pancetta frittatas, caramelized tomato and ham bites, brie and quince matchsticks, teriyaki chicken rice paper rolls, sumac and sesame chicken skewers, caraway breadsticks with beetroot dip, crab and fennel quiche, tomato and bacon scrolls, sausage rolls, cheese scones, mini cabanossi pizzas, club sandwich.
Apart from the sandwiches and sausage rolls these are not most peoples idea of everyday snacks. They have more in common with canapes and starters, hence the "snazzy" of the title, I suppose. All look very pretty and nicely displayed in the photographs and they would be good for presenting to friends and for handing around at parties.

Great little bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 3 December 2012
The mini books are very handy if you want to find a recipe quickly. The photographs are very good. I know that if I cook from a Australian Women's Weekly book then the recipe will come out right.
