Hansen, owner of Max & Me Catering in Bucks County, Pa., offers his restaurant's signature dish, smoked salmon, among many other recipes in a nicely designed cookbook full of enticing photos and fun retro designs. A chapter on""Canapes and Hors d'Oeuvres"" opens with such entries as Smoked Salmon""Roses"" on Eli's Raisin-Pecan Bread, and Crostini with Smoked Salmon, Arugula, Mascaropone, and Fried Shallots. Hansen and food writer Goldenson then move on from first courses (Smoked Salmon and Spoonbill Caviar with Shaved Fennel and Herbs) to breakfast basics, such as Scrambled Eggs with Lox and Onions, and Smoked Salmon Frittata with Potatoes, Onions, and Chervil. Rounding out the book are great ideas for lunch: Smoked Salmon Croque-Monsieur, for example, and Whole-Grain Wheat Bread with Smoked Salmon, Hummus, Avocado, Tomato, and Sprouts. The authors' recipes are accessible, their tone is friendly, and they include all the steps necessary to prepare and serve salmon, from smoking to slicing.
