Need help putting together a multi-course meal

Transplant_DK | Oct 17, 2011 09:21 PM

I'm planning a small intimate dinner party for my husband's 50th birthday in December, and he would like "lots of courses that take hours to eat". I like to do some kind of complicated/impressive things when we have guests, but am having trouble thinking of what goes together, foods that won't be too heavy for 5-7 courses, etc.

So far, I have a first course planned with a thin slice of rye bread, tiny bites of smoked eel, and a few carefully placed condiments (capers, "sea foam", etc).

I think one main should be a small fillet mignon--maybe with Madagascar pepper sauce (his favorite) or possibly a dollop of crab meat and a drizzle of sauce, which is something I made for another event that went over well.

Any ideas what would work with these?
