Help with "Eat, Pray, Love" menu

Hey fellow 'hounds,

I'd like to do a book club meeting spread themed to "Eat, Pray, Love" which is set in Italy, India and Bali. We don't do a full meal - we usually have a hot appetizer, cheese, fruit and/or crudite and a dessert. Since it's likely to be cold here, I was thinking of breaking the mold with a big pot of soup (we have 12 people) served in mugs. Also, I have to be able to prepare much in advance, as I work all day the day of the meeting. Oh, and we're all sitting in the living room, not around a dining table. So things have to be fairly uncomplicated. Here's what I'm thinking so far:

Alternate #1
Assortment of Italian cheeses
An "Indonesian" spiced blended tomato soup

Alternate #2
"Pizza" made on Naan
Indonesian Spiced Soup
Mango with lime and chile
Store-bough cream puffs (relevant to the book)

We have several vegetarians, and some who don't eat any fish. That limits me. Any other, more creative suggestions?
