Thinking of having a pretty formal dinner for friends. It is not hard to think of some books to come up with formal Italian or Friench menus for a dinner party, but I must admit to being a little stumped for a more Asian theme.
My only resources at hand are some older Barbara ropp books and Martin Yan's Chinatown. What else am i missing? I know there is more out there. I'd like a great, sort of formal, multicourse dinner with courses my guests have not seen before. What can I do?
