At the cocktail hour, serve crunchy vegetables complete with their own dip: buttermilk-peppercorn, roasted pepper and eggplant, or toasted curry. Their "bowls" -- hollowed-out slices of baguettes in pumpernickel, plain, or "everything" -- are meant to be eaten, too.

I made these for a baby shower, and they were an absolute show stopper! I used Ina Garten's recipe for Herb Dip which was perfect, as its very tasty and very thick - so the veggies stand up well. I used a quality white French bread for all of them. I also gave every serving each of the veggies. Each one had a pea pod (string them), asparagus, and match sticks of red pepper, yellow pepper and carrots. I did not blanch them. Absolutely gorgeous!
