the SO and I belong to a casual group of friends who get together a several times a year to share in a foreign food theme. Everyone takes turns hosting at their home. The host provides the main dish and everyone else brings appetisers, sides and dessert.

It's all done to a theme. We've done Italian, Mexican, frog, South American, BBQ and Caribbean.

well, now it's our turn.

seeing how ARFCOM is pretty diverse, I'm looking to you for suggestions on what you think would be pretty cool to do.

Due to the up and coming holidays, we're looking at doing this in Janurary, so keep that in mind if there my be a requirement for something seasonal.

thanks

I didn't see anything from Asia listed.... Japanese steak/sushi may be good, or chinese/thai/vietnamese is always tasty.

my friends and I do sushi every once in while. Find a japanese grocer and he will help you are with everything you need. One of the tricks to good sushi is sticky, short grain japanese rice with the correct sugar, salt, rice wine vinegar.

Mostly, my friends and I do maki (sushi rolls with seaweed paper).

Seaweed paper, bed of rice, fish and vegie, and roll it up like a doobie.

Wasabi tops it off. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

you must go with Thai. best food on the planet.
Link Posted: 9/25/2005 5:05:33 PM EDT

<--- Dumbfuck Pollack here!

Perogies are proof God exists. Get a Polish cookbook. We Pollacks really aren't that bright sometimes, and a Polish cookbook is proof. Nearly every recipe calls for calf brains or beer. Don't make those.

Damn, I need to head over to Stan's in Toledo and pick up some kielbasa.
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 3:51:24 AM EDT
Indian or Japanese.
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 4:24:49 AM EDT
Chinese or Thai!

Their food is good too.

Indian-Vindaloo Curry with garlic pickles is the bomb...literally
Thai
Japanese
Turkish

Co in January, gonna be cold. I'd probably theme for German, Austrian, Alsacian, Swiss-something along those lines. Even a Russian grand feast would be a blast-blini and caviar, salmon, etc. Roast or braised game, from boar to venison to fowl would also fit in perfectly.

Cook with the seasons, its a lot cheaper that way too.Not sure what your skills are, need help let me know.

Of your choices; Thai.

However, you could try to make Pho!

I'd go for Japanese.

You'll have a wide range of choice from simple to very complex flavors. And, it's a healthy diet if you stick to traditional (not Westernized) items.

I wouldn't recommend anyting raw at home, as with sashimi, unless you are experienced. But, Tempura veggies (with dips), Miso soup, and noodle dishes, Inari, and Maki with cooked shrimp and veggies make an excellent meal.

And you'll impress the heck out of your guests.

Polish, obviously.

German will have to do on the poll, however.

How bout' some pics to push you over towards the German side, Frau Quibs meal in progress.......

Schweinebraten(porkroast)




Kloss(potatoe dumplings)




And of course sauer kraut!




My mother-in-law’s family owned a gasthaus in Bavaria, she taught my wife everything she knew about cooking!

You could REALLY suprise them and do a vegetarian meal, complete with Boca Burgers/Boca Meat, fake chicken patties, etc. Don't tell them til after the meal that it was meatless. I bet either 1) people will be pleasantly suprised, or 2) you get yelled at.

Link Posted: 9/27/2005 1:02:08 PM EDT
Hot damn QUIB that looks mighty tasty!

Thai food is exquisite. I recently had Vietnamese pho, and I loved it!
