Fancy birthday buffet for 30 people (some food snobs) - help!

KJaser | Feb 21, 2012 10:40 AM

Having Birthday buffet for 25 adults, about 8-10 older kids - with a french theme (the honoree lived in France and worked in a French restaurant for 10 years). Food doesn't have to be french, although all the wines i've purchased are really lovely french wines. Many of the invitees are -well, not food snobs exactly - but let's say they know their way around the best restaurants in 30 miles. So far the only thing I have come up with is a salmon platter & baked brie for apps, a Greenberg smoked turkey, mini-quiches and roasted asparagus for the buffet table (and the requisite birthday cake for dessert) . . . . .anyone have any ideas for apps/sides or a main dish for those that don't go for the smoked turkey? any suggestions welcomed!
