Chowhounds like to feed their friends at dinner parties, and what’s cooler than hosting a dinner party with a theme? Okay, it’s not that cool, but it could be fun.
cackalackie suggests a Bollywood theme–serve curries, dosas, and pani poori, play Bollywood movie soundtracks, and provide bindis and henna tattoos for guests to wear.
atheorist proposes Russian zakuski as a theme–the Russian appetizer course, including blini and ice-cold vodka. Make the buckwheat pancakes and serve smoked fish, pickles, sour cream, and honey.
ML8000 likes the idea of serving school cafeteria food. Or, says chowser, how about “Balls Around the World”–ball-shaped food from every culture?
