My sister has just asked me to cook for 15 of her fellow college-aged (18-20 year old) interns on Friday night. I have been dreaming of having a big group to cook for, and now I have my chance! The best part--someone else is footing the bill, so I have some money to play with. She has requested Italian (read: baked ziti or chicken parm, but I want to take that and run with it). I would love to hear some of your suggestions on what to make. Here are the details:
-The food will be served buffet-style
-I am hoping to have some smaller bites for them to munch on when they first arrive
-I want to stay away from any sort of make your own pizza/ pasta bar type thing
-My sister is fairly picky, and I imagine at least a few others will be also. So I am hoping to find things that are fun and different, but that many people would eat.
