"If I had to choose one word to describe Lukas Volger's Snacks for Dinner, it would be LIBERATING! Snacks for dinner recalibrated my entire mindset about what dinner can be - from colorful crudites and dip, to a spread of pickles with crackers, hearty centerpieces which can be eaten by hand, and soups that can be sipped like a smoothie, Lukas succeeds in showing us that dinner need not be onerous, complicated or anything less than simple and fun. Lukas's snacky-style eating single-handedly brings joy back to the dinner table." -- Hetty McKinnon, author of To Asia with Love

"This book is an absolute treasure for home cooks searching for celebration. Just one or two of these playful-yet-simple recipes can transform a humble snack into a full-fledged party for one, two, or a crowd. A bowl of Chex Mix gets studded with crispy ramen clusters; sweet potato dip is perfumed with the smoky scent of chipotle. With Snacks for Dinner, Lukas has not just given us permission to serve snacks as a meal, he also celebrates the whimsy and freedom that can come with it." -- Jesse Szewczyk, author of Cookies: The New Classics

"Snacks for Dinner gives us permission to make meals out of all of the nibbles we've too long relegated as 'starters.' Why can't dinner be a union of crispy lemony chickpeas and creamy, dilly white beans alongside charred radicchio with farro and burrata? Now it can. With each bright, textured, vegetable-loaded bite more irresistible than the last, dinner has never been so delicious." -- Alexandra Stafford, author of Bread Toast Crumbs

"Snacks for Dinner perfectly captures the vibes of my favorite kind of dinner party: impromptu yet deeply thoughtful, fancy-feeling but not fussy, with vegetables at the center. With delightfully clever recipes and his warm, confident guidance, Lukas shows us how to turn something as humble as dip and crackers into a memorable meal that's worth sharing." -- Christina Chaey, senior food editor, Bon Appétit

"Snacks for Dinner is a joyful invitation to make your meals simpler, fresher, and SO much more fun! Whether you want to spice up a weeknight dinner or assemble a stunning special occasion spread, Lukas's thoughtful writing and creative recipes will give you the skills, confidence, and inspiration you need." -- Jeanine Donofrio, author of The Love & Lemons Cookbook

"The snacking game gets a definite upgrade in this winning collection." -- Publishers Weekly

"Personal stories, suggested pairings, and menu tips make this ideal for those who enjoy hosting gatherings or dream of eating whole meals of delicious snacks." -- Booklist
