I know it feels like it is still months away from Christmas but it really is not and friends of ours came up with the idea to throw a pre-christmas party where the guests each cook something for dinner. Sounds like a fabulous plan right? And ofcourse we said yes immediately. Now the numbers are drawn and each of the friends or couples have their own assignment to make for dinner. Guess what we have to make for 23 people?? You guessed it; the main course..
Now the problem is that first of all the kitchen where the dinner is held is small and yes we can heat up things but we cannot really make anything there. So we will have to bring the food in it’s more or less prepared state to the table. I have been thinking of making something like a honey glazed ham which we did last year and which was perfect. It can be served warm or cold and would make a perfect meal for 23 people. But… and here come the problem; other than salads I cannot think of how to make something as a sidedish that can go together with the meat and also will be edible by the time some hours have passed. A quiche of sorts would work but I am hoping you guys have some alternative solutions to this….
Our pre-christmas test cooking for christmas itself is gonna be starting this weekend, so you will see some try outs pass by!!
