'It is fresh, innovative ad delicious.' The Telegraph 'Stripped-back and simple....every dish carries flavour and texture' The Sunday Times 'You know this food, this shameless, sensory largess, will make you feel very good about yourself' Jay Rayner, The Observer 'Fresh, innovative and delicious' The Telegraph - Book of the week 'A nailed-on culinary genius running the most rewarding small local restaurant I have encountered in years' Giles Coren Australian-born chef Chris Honor has been hailed by Giles Coren of The Times as 'a nailed-on culinary genius', running 'the most rewarding small local restaurant I have encountered in years'. His recipes for great salads, sweet and savoury bakes, soups and wonderful sharing plates are highly original, but really simple to create at home, and with American food writer Laura Washburn Hutton he shares 100 of his most memorable recipes. Chris writes: 'What this book will offer the reader is an education in balancing taste and texture, with plenty of visual inspiration. It is as much guidebook as cookery book because I don't necessarily think in terms of recipes, I think in terms of combinations. Mix up the flavours and textures and, at the same time, make it appeal to the eye. Be generous, make it unpredictable; this is what I do. My book will teach the reader to do this too.'

Celebrated caterer Peter Callahan knows how to throw a party. With a career spanning more than two decades and a client list including celebrities, politicians, Fortune 500 companies, and New York City socialites, Peter has earned a reputation for creating hors d’oeuvres that are as inventive and beautiful as they are delicious. A two-sip shot cleverly matched to a small bite is an incredible icebreaker, especially when the appetizer is playfully served on an edible spoon or inside a miniature Chinese take-out container. Bite-size cheeseburgers are served on tiny home-baked poppy seed buns with all the trimmings. Mango-marinated shrimp are served individually on lollipop sticks sprinkled with fresh cilantro; diminutive plantain cones are filled with dollops of tuna tartare; and chicken is rolled into nori “cigarettes.” And for an impressive encore, how about shots of coffee with sugar donuts, or mini bagels with lox and cream cheese paired with caviar cones and champagne? In Bite by Bite, his debut cookbook, Callahan welcomes readers to share in the fun and beauty of his creations, providing inspiration for parties—whether casual gatherings, dinner parties, baby showers, or formal occasions such as weddings and holiday soirees—and 100 recipes for the home cook, ranging from savory to sweet, comfort food to haute cuisine. According to Peter, being prepared is the key to pulling off a self-catered party like a professional. With that in mind, he has included a “Kitchen Tools and Conveniences” section, listing the key equipment that will help you create the delicious masterpieces in this book. In the recipes he also notes what can be made in advance, how best to schedule your time, and any emergency substitutions and shortcuts that will make life easier on the big day. Along the way, he divulges his secrets and inspiration, recounting stories of how he dreamed up dishes that he’s catered for his impressive roster of celebrity clients. Full of creative recipes, unique party ideas, and vibrant food photography, Bite by Bite is your go-to source for inspired hors d’oeuvres and whimsical treats that will transform any gathering into an unforgettable event.
