Just picked up caterer Peter Callahan’s new cookbook…and proceeded to spend the next hour oohing, awwwing and definitely drooling over his diminutive recipes. I’ve always been a huge fan of Callahan’s creative approach to catering, and Bite by Bite definitely showcases it to the fullest advantage. His genius lies in the ability to whittle dishes down to their smallest size while still capturing all the essential flavors of the traditional version. Really, every page in the book is gorgeous enough to feature here…but I somehow managed to narrow them down to my 5 favorites. The winner would have to be these fish tacos and margaritas, served in a mini Pàtron bottle. To-die-for, right?! Follow the jump for the other contenders…
caprese tea sandwiches
buckwheat blinis, caviar & vodka
chocolate ice cream “burgers” with sweet churro “fries”
milk & cookies
*sigh* My lunch suddenly doesn’t look very interesting.
Which one is your fave?
