World Cup Brunch - Italian & French food ideas?

tastyjon | Jul 7, 2006 01:08 AM

So I'm having about 15 people over on Sunday to watch the finals.

At the time of the invite the premise was the food served would be from the two remaining countries. So we might have been eating sausage from Portugal or brats from Bavaria. As it turns out, France vs. Italy is not a bad foodie final. Being an informal affair, I was thinking of dishes easy to share... and since the game is around lunchtime - we could do both brekkie/brunch items or more standard entrees.

Any creative suggestions for things to serve? We're in Ariz. summer so I'm not keen on simmering beef bourgogne for hours. Drink ideas would be cool as well. Maybe in 4 years I'll do it again and invite those who reply (though we'll be eating English food, one hopes - for the team that is). Thanks!
