I (we are) am cooking a dinner party for 12 --was an item in an auction for my daughter's school. thinking we will do a fall-inspired dinner. (supposed to be 4 courses).
appetizers: thinking onion and grape leaf tarts, and maybe a mushroom wellington in phyllo cups?
soup--or salad? I have a nice recipe for a vegetable ragout served in miniature pumkins that looks good--from the CIA.
Main Course--pork--either herb/garlic roast or a crown roast? butternut or pumkin risotto (if we do the salad instead of the soup) or potato/sunchoke puree, and veggie (brussel sprouts or roasted cauliflower)
Dessert: small somethings....apple, chocolate, chestnut???
