Ides of March party
I am throwing an Ides of March themed party... have asked my guests to don togas and will be serving hors d'oeuvres. Any ideas for hors d'oeuvres along this theme? Preferably cold items that can be left out...
Since the Ides of March has a Roman history, I would suggest anything typicaly Italian or from the Roman cuisine such as these which were eaten in ancient Rome:
Bread/crostini with cheese and/or sausage rounds and other salamis;
Crudites such as radishes, parsnip chips, asparagus;
Small fish such as fried smelts, sardines;
Olive oil, wine, and herbs along with what is very similar to fish sauce (Garum)...were used lavishly so you can use these freely to spice things up.
