Catering Inspiration: 2 New Books
“While he thinks big, he delivers small, in the sense of finely constructed, inventive, creative, delicious, mind-boggling, tiny, bite-sized, ultra-tasty tidbits.”
That’s Martha Stewart, writing about New York caterer Peter Callahan in the foreword to his first book, Bite by Bite: 100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party (Clarkson Potter, $35). It’s filled with recipes and photos of the innovative morsels Callahan Catering is known for—meatballs with a swirl of spaghetti on top, scrambled eggs in a little bacon cup. It’s hard to imagine many people pulling these off at home (who has the time? or such tiny fingers?), but they sure look great.
