help: my mother gave me a specific menu to serve

wowimadog | Nov 2, 2006 08:25 PM

i'm hosting my mom's birthday dinner (for 11) this year and asked her what type of cuisine she might want and she gave me a specific menu. trouble is, i don't routinely cook this type of food. i'm more of an ethnic-food-loving home chef. i am comfortable in the kitchen and love to be challenged, so i'm curious: what would you do with this menu to make it more modern? favorite recipes? cookbooks to consult? cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to pair with it? other ideas?

rare roast beef
potatoes – any kind
soft rolls
a whipped cream white or yellow cake
