Giving a party for my mother's birthday in New Orleans. Inspired by her worldview and flair, the party should be the kind of party where Edith Piaf might be singing, and where you might find the long lost Tsar and Tsarina.
That said, I'm making various canipés. Should I go with wild smoked salmon, or gravlax? (I love both, so I'm worried I'm not a good judge.) Do most people like gravlax, or does it seem too raw for most people?
