TJ Girard and Bob Spiegel, co-owners of the catering company Pinch Food Design, are known for their unforgettable party food and one-of-a-kind design sensibility. This book reveals their trade secrets, offering up irresistible recipes for your next cocktail party—paired with DIY projects for presenting food in fun, elegant, and original ways.
Forget about the same old tired dips, mini quiches, and pot stickers. Instead think truffled quail eggs on mini English muffins, skate schnitzel with spaetzle, deconstructed buffalo chicken wings, fennel glazed duck on polenta, salted chocolate cookie with rosemary ice cream sandwiches, banana semifreddo on cocoa rice crunch, and more. With these addictively delicious recipes and advice on how to present food like a pro, Inspired Bites ensures the next gathering you host will be a memorable one.


"The gift of taste, presentation, fun, and sophistication all wrapped up into one."
David Burke, chef and restaurateur
