Balls! does not limit its interpretation of the round and tasty to the meatball. There are chapters on fish balls, vegeta-balls, fancy balls, sweetie balls and, of course, ballistic cocktails. Along with recipes, there are little-known facts about all things round -- and anecdotes, too. Recipes include: Pecan-crusted chicken balls with chutney dip Minty lamb meatballs with zippy dipping sauce Sushi style crab balls Black bean balls with spicy sauce Arancini (Sicilian rice balls) Melon ballet Keftedes (Greek meatballs) Gateau St. Honore de Balzac. Discover how different nations have embraced this shape with its undeniable global appeal -- from a classic French birthday cake to spicy Asian fishballs to the Italian meatball.
