Bite Catering

Toronto ON

Canapés, hors d’oeuvre, tapas. Whatever you call them, the party nibbles at Bite Catering are skillfully prepared by Karen Rachlin. In fact, she’s built her entire catering business around cocktail fare. With an emphasis on trends—sweet-potato fries with black truffle aioli dip in Chinese food takeout boxes; pistachio-crusted lamb lollipops; and savory, crispy cones with smoked salmon, crème fraîche and fresh herbs—she can make smaller versions of just about any food. Diminutive bites for in-home gatherings, weddings, corporate events, store openings and parties might include miniature Kobe burgers on home-baked buns, and lobster-avocado quesadillas, followed by individual caramel- and chocolate-dipped cheesecake lollipops with crushed-peanut bottoms. The company will also put together take-home gifts for guests (including candy boxes and personalized cupcakes) and can arrange all event coordination, including music, flowers and decoration.
