Head chef Dave Davilo of local catering company Davilo Catering can’t seem to stop making the company’s passed appetizers tinier and tinier.
“It started with the burgers,” explained Dave, “One day in the kitchen I had the idea to make them a little bit smaller. The next day at the wedding we were catering, the people went wild. Ever since that first hit of success, I haven’t been able to stop myself from seeing how much smaller I can make the food we serve.”
“I was at the wedding when they first debuted their version of sliders,” recalled Cynthia Jones, a guest at the event. “People were pleased, because they could finally fit their mouths around the food in one bite. But things have really gone down since then. I have to bring my glasses just to be able to find the bruschetta on the platter.”
“Last week at a luncheon they catered, they brought out whole lobster tails,” said Marcia Taylor, another customer. “They were so tiny, they looked like little cheetos on the plate. I didn’t know you could find lobsters that small. They also just used hollowed out oyster crackers as miniature bread bowls.”
At press time, Davilo was seen using a magnifying glass to arrange a tray of bridal shower themed cupcakes.
