Preparing for cocktail party

hotsauce28 | Dec 14, 2009 01:35 PM

Hoping you guys can help me. I'm trying to prepare as much as possible the night before the party and I'm wondering on a couple of specific things.

1. Lotus root chip - If I fry this the night before, will it get soggy the day after?

2. Chilled soup (I'm thinking pea) - How long do you think it'll be okay sitting at room temperature? (Real estate in the fridge is an issue)

3. Quail Eggs - Are they very hard to work with? I always have a hard time peeling boiled eggs. They always end up looking mangled.

4. Cheese plate - Does it make sense to serve at the beginning of a party or at then end with fruit?

Thanks in advance!
