I was inspired by a post on potluck themes, and I wanted to add something I've been considering for a while:
I want to do a "70's Funk" music party, getting foods that reflect great songs or artists of the time. They don't necessarily have to be typical of the "70's" kind of food, though.
First off the bat: The Ohio Players "Fire" FI-YURR! unh-unh. <cue to grill some foods>.
Then, "Funky Nassau" to cue up some conch fritters...
Of course, where would we be without the unequalled James Brown, maybe "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" -- to cue up some fish en papillote?
Parliament Funkadelic? http://musicalstewdaily.files.wordpre... inspires some wild jello salad with spiky carrots and celery inside ;-).
What would be your ideas for the party? Name a song or artist and the food or technique that you suggest as the proper homage. I know you all are creative, so... GET FUNKY, y'all!
