Alyse Whitney has been a Dip Queen for decades, making the writer, editor, Cosmopolitan food columnist, and TV host the perfect diplomat for this first-of-its-kind cookbook. Big Dip Energyoffers endless fun and easy ways to both entertain and enjoy solo with creative dips and dippers.

Dip is the world’s universal love language, and dipficionada Alyse is here to teach you how to be fluent in Big Dip Energy. In this personality-filled, outrageously fun book, she shares her MVDs (most valuable dips and dippers), tips for dipceptively easy entertaining, and styling inspiration for the best #DipPics. Dip can turn any moment into a party, and helps turn strangers into friends as they gather ’round the bowl and dip into her twists on classics and innovative transformations of popular dishes to dips.

There’s a diptionary to help break down the basics, and suggested modipfications offer alternatives to satisfy vegans, vegetarians, and gluten-free dip fanatics. Plus, almost every recipe in the book is a one-pan wonder and takes less than 45 minutes from start to finish, including:

  • Caesar Salad Dip, with romaine lettuce in the dip and as the dipper
  • Death Breath Dip, a slow-roasted allium dip in mint condition
  • Crab Rangoon Dip, with Rainbow Dumpling Chips or Wonton Lil’ Scoopz
  • This Dip Is Bananas, a combination of banana bread, banana pudding, and bananas foster with an innovative dipssert technique
  • Chopped Cheese(burger) Queso, a loaded cheesy dip inspired by the NYC bodega-favorite sandwich—complete with Hoagie Toasts!
  • Drive-Thru Taco 7-Layer Dip, an homage to Alyse’s love of Taco Bell
  • Saag Paneer Artichoke Dip, filled with warm spices and perfectly paired with crispy paneer “dipsticks”
  • Pizza Your Way Dip in a Garlic Knot Wreath, with white and red sauce versions
  • And much more! 

Leave the party planning up to Big Dip Energy and get inspired to dip into the world of the undipfeated champion of party food.

A Best Cookbook of Spring 2024 “As you might expect from a book called Big Dip Energy, there’s a playful vibe here. The colors are saturated, the names are sometimes corny, and the puns are shameless. But if you can say “In Queso Emergency” with a straight face, you’ll find dips full of flavor and punch that take their inspiration from just about everywhere. . . . Big Dip Energy will make you the life of the party. Even if your party is a dinner for one.” — Eater
