Celebrated New York caterer Peter Callahan is the man to thank for the bite-sized comfort food trend that has swept the cocktail hour scene in recent years. And his new book, Bite by Bite: 100 Stylish Little Plates You Can Make for Any Party (Clarkson Potter, $35), is filled with gorgeous photos and the recipes for his most popular and inventive creations—tiny grilled cheeses with tomato soup shots, mac 'n' cheese canapés, meatballs with spaghetti on top, and lots more. While kitchen-savvy bridesmaids might be willing and able to pull off some of the recipes for a bridal shower, I'd recommend picking up a copy of the book simply for culinary inspiration. You're guaranteed to find a bunch of adorable and delicious ideas to share with your caterer. For more menu inspiration, visit our Food & Drinks gallery. —Lauren Matthews
