Jewish Food Dinner Party Menu Help

rjlebed | Feb 13, 201109:08 PM

As part of a silent auction for Make A Wish, two friends and I donated a dinner for eight featuring Jewish cooking. The menu is:

Home Baked Challah
deviled eggs
Chicken soup with matzo balls
Brisket with carrots
Orange almond chicken
Noodle kugel
Potato kugel
Steamed veggies or other vegetable dish
triple chocolate cake
peaches in puff pastry
ice cream/sorbet

My part is really pretty easy but potentially boring. I am responsible for the Salad, veggies and ice cream/sorbet. Any thoughts on some interesting choices for these courses? Would love to make it extra special since folks paid a decent amount of money for the charity! Also, we are preparing it and serving it at their home. Any ideas for other ways to make it special would be appreciated! Thanks.
