Eat with your hands dinner party

Transplant_DK | Feb 21, 2012 12:04 AM

Most people around here think of me as that nutty American anyway, so I figured I might take it a bit farther and plan an eat with your hands dinner party for some neighbors. Danes tend to be somewhat rigid about eating with utensils and I've witnessed not only burgers and pizza but also boiled shrimp and BBQ ribs being daintily cut with a knife and fork.

So, who would like to help me plan a totally (or close to) hands only meal? I'm thinking maybe an African theme or maybe Malaysian using banana leaves, but I'm not locked on anything.

Not sure if I'll go so far as to remove the table and chairs and have everyone sit on pillows on the floor, but would love to also hear some serving suggestions.
