    One thought on “Bite By Bite: 100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party”

    1. Interesting little party finger foods. Many things look very complicated, but like another reviewer here, I was intrigued by the "Baked Beans in Bacon Cups"and the "Rice Krispy canapes with yogurt and berries."

    2. This cookbook is stuffed with miniature real foods ready for any party. Some of the recipes are pretty labor-intensive, but they all look delicious!

    3. Love this book! The way he creates all these mini appetizers is fascinating, and while some items (cooking tools) might not be available over here regularly, he provides great alternatives and shortcuts to many. A big theme of the book as well deals with display of the food and how an appetizer looks infinitely more appetizing if presented uniquely. Looking through this book definitely made me excited to throw an appetizer only dinner party LOL

    4. Oh my goodnessI wanted to tear out the pages and eat them myself. I could not believe how cute and delicious some of the food looked in this cookbook. My favorite was "Baked Beans in Bacon Cups" & "Rice Crispy Canapes with yogurt & blueberries". These little items were so small you could fit a meal in your hand.

    5. The appetizer-sized but labor-intensive snacks in this cookbook are really fabulous and adorable. Some day, I hope to make and serve the Peace of Pizza, Vegetable Lasagnas, Spicy Chicken "Fortune Cookies" and Cherry Sake, Corn Soup and Bacon--those are the takeaways for me.

    6. Peter Callahan is the caterer to the stars. In Bite by Bite he offers 100 gorgeous miniature appetizers to wow your guests. See my review here:livinginthekitchenwithpuppies.

    7. Great food porn in miniature size - seriously, the pictures of food will make you drool. Some recipes are far more labor-intensive than I'd want, but the ideas are so clever. And did I mention the photos? I'm hungry, just thinking about it.

    8. Loved it. Im so into catering, which i love. But these are cute little recipes for parties you can do and there quick and simple
