I am having 12 - 14 for dinner next weekend. Since my table won't hold that many I want to do a buffet that does not require knives. The age range is 1 - 70 with all adults except the 1 yo. I'm thinking of beef bourguinon(sp?), Ina Garten's chicken pot pie or paella. Paella usually requires a knife and shells etc. can be messy. I have dessert covered. It's the main course and the accompaniments that have me flummoxed. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
