Trend We Love: Mini Food

Eenie, meenie, minie, MEATBALL! And pig-in-a-blanket! And baby caramel apple! It seemed like every party we went to during bridal market featured adorable, delectable bites perfectly proportioned for a dollhouse kitchen.

We munched our way from Joan Rivers’ party for Preston Bailey to Colin Cowie’s wedding-website launch, from the Upper East Side to West Chelsea and beyond…finally hitting the mini-motherlode at a book launch celebrating the creative force behind this genius cuisine: Peter Callahan. His new cookbook, Bite by Bite: 100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party, is a gorgeous and easy-to-follow guide to Callahan’s inventive food, as whimsical as it is delicious.
