There are caterers, and then there are culinary masterminds. With more than 30 years of experience creating memorable food-fueled experiences, Peter Callahan falls squarely into the latter category, always exceeding the expectations of even the most discerning clients.

A truly gifted caterer, Callahan is widely credited with changing the face of the culinary world by creating the concept of one-bite comfort food, such as sliders, and the idea of serving “shots” alongside miniaturized morsels as an amuse bouche.

Founded in 1985, Peter Callahan has grown to become one of the most famous event-production companies in the world. Their talented staff includes chefs, artists, craftsmen, and graphic artists who have at their disposal supersized laser cutters, 3D printers, and other cutting-edge design tools to help them create truly bespoke event décor.

Ultimately, Callahan’s secret for creating unforgettable events is his extraordinary attention to every detail of an event and his keen eye for interesting trends. His celebrations are designed to make an impact, and clients, such as former President Barack Obama, Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch, Vera Wang, and Marc Jacobs, would agree. In fact, he is one of the few caterers in the world whose private clients often schedule their events around his availability because they wouldn’t think of hosting a party without him.

Callahan is recognized around the globe, thanks to his bestselling cookbook, Bite by Bite, which features an introduction by domestic doyenne Martha Stewart. His hotly anticipated follow-up tome, which may be pre-ordered here, will be released this summer. The question the country’s top party hosts are asking themselves is: What culinary trend will he think of next?
