100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party
Hardcover ISBN: 0307718794
"Peter Callahan invented high-end party food as we know it. Now, he shares his secrets. In Bite by Bite, Peter invites readers to enter his world of whimsy and wit, where tuna tartare becomes an ice cream cone, shrimp cocktail becomes lollipops, and frites are served next to mini sliders. In Peter's world, cotton candy has left the carnival and arrives in miniature on Park Avenue and comfort food is dwarfed to perfection with Lilliputian versions of grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, and spaghetti and meatballs. There are 100 recipes, all accompanied by vibrant food photography, ranging from savory to sweet and haute cuisine to comfort food, and variations, tips, and shortcuts to make and present food and drink. In his debut cookbook, Peter simplifies his catering style and makes his recipes achievable for the home cook, divulging along the way his secrets and inspiration, including stories of how he dreamed up dishes that he's catered for his long roster of celebrity clients.

Arguably the most seductive city in the world, Venice exudes magic and mystery, history and tradition, so it comes as no surprise that a city which delights at every turn should have a few little-known treasures to discover, too. Not least the custom of enjoying cicchetti (pronounced ‘chee-keh-tee’). Discover the charms of a small but bustling bacaro, where traditionally a glass of wine, known as an ‘ombra’, is served together with a selection of small plates or ‘cicchetti’. There are over 40 recipes starting with Verdura (vegetables) including Rosemary Roasted Chickpeas, Venetian Cheese with Cipolline in Agrodolce and Fig & Blue Cheese Pizzette; or try simple Pesce (fish) plates of Mixed Fried Fish, Soft Shell Crab with Lemon & Caper Mayonnaise, Red Mullet in Saor and Scallops with Borlotti Beans. Also featured are Carne (meat) recipes for Artichokes with Taleggio Cheese & Prosciutto, Calves’ Liver with Onions & Potato, Speck & Smoked Ricotta Crocchette. Finish up a selection of Crostini & Tramezzini (breads) as well as Bevande (drinks) to do as the Venetians do. Venetians love to linger a while with friends, chatting over these wonderful morsels and a glass of wine, a Spritz or Campari Soda, but cicchetti make perfect food for entertaining at home, too. Whether for pre-dinner nibbles, or a full blown party, bring a little taste of Italy to your kitchen at home.
