New Year's Eve menu - advice needed!

mp413 | Dec 29, 201001:31 AM

I am having a dinner party for New Year's and need help planning dishes. It's a multicultural dinner featuring NYE traditions from Japan and Czech Rep (so far) so I need ideas for hors d'oeuvres and other dishes that could complement the mains:

- Japanese noodles with shrimp and squid
- Lentil soup

Because that's all carb-heavy I was thinking salad or some kind of other raw/light dishes would be good? Any ideas?

Oh, and I can get decent steak, charcuteries, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, eggplant, peppers, and basil possibly. For sundries I have nice olive oil & vinegars, sesame oil, mirin, truffle oil, canned hearts of palm, kidney beans, capers, low quality olives, maybe cornichons (I live in Chad!)

Would very much appreciate menu planning advice!
