Smart-Casual Canapés is the third chapter from The Sorted Crew's new cookbook, Food with Friends. Things seem so much more sophisticated when translated into French, but while the word canapé sounds pretty classy, these bite-sized appetisers are actually just finger food. The real trick is to make them look as posh as they sound, so each canapé in this chapter is stupidly simple to make, but when you put four or five together they look really impressive. Recipes include: Jerk Chicken Potato Wedges, Mango, Coriander and Crayfish Sticks, Micro Jackets with Guacamole and Tequila Salmon Gravadlax. Food with Friends is the second cookbook from The Sorted Crew, with recipes by Ben Ebbrell. It's the ultimate guide for entertaining friends in a fun and fuss-free way, from romantic suppers and family barbecues to curry nights for hungry hordes. Whether you're cooking for two or twenty, Food with Friends by The Sorted Crew is THE book for easy entertaining. The Sorted Crew came together in their university holidays, sharing their cooking highs and lows with each other in the pub. Headed up by Ben Ebbrell and Barry Taylor, this original group of 8 mates with an interest in food has now grown into a highly engaged online community of hundreds of thousands, that works together to get food challenges sorted. The SortedFood video recipes on YouTube now get millions of views every month. They self-published two recipe books, A Recipe for Student Survival and A Rookie's Guide to Crackin' Cooking, and Beginners... Get Sorted was their first book with Penguin.

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.
