I'm having a dinner party for 10-12 people in a few weeks and am planning to serve tapas. While most of the crew is carniverous, I have a few picky carnivores, a vegan, and someone who only eats raw foods. Here's what I was thinking of serving:
lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce
sizzling garlic shrimp
garlic potato salad or roasted potatoes with garlic aioli
some sort of all-raw salad
I was also considering serrano ham (thinly sliced), marinated mushrooms, and maybe a dressed-up crudite platter. And lots of great bread.
For dessert, I was thinking of candied walnuts, assorted dried fruit, and a few types of homemade cookies (I have a few vegan recipes that are great).
Does anyone have any other suggestions of what to add to the menu? Do you think that this will pass with a picky group? A vegan group? A raw group? My raw friend expects very little when invited to these sorts of things but I still want to take care of her.
Thanks so much!
