I'm hosting a 50th birthday brunch on Sunday for a close friend. There will be 8 of us at most - 4 couples (plus umpteen dogs, but they'll be eating separately)s. I'd like to make it really delicious and special. 3 of us can contribute to the cooking, so no one will be doing everything. I want this to be wonderful, a little lavish and fairly seasonal. She eats everything, as far as I know.
My first thought was some kind of crepes. Maybe seafood.
What else? I'm looking for the big picture here.
