Natural Disaster Party

akate Aug 10, 2009 09:47 AM

I'm doing a natural disaster themed party. Hurricanes, flash floods, volcano, earthquakes, heat waves, etc. What are some good ideas for themed foods?

      "Tornadoes" of beef with Bearnaise sauce.

            And very dry martinis for a drought.

              I've made the Earthquake cake many times. It's easy and delicious. I would also suggest a Lava Dip, which is just a melty cheese dip with tomato and hot chili peppers. Spicy!

                Chocolate volcano cake.
                Pound cake (baked in loaf pan) with the characteristic crack (i.e. fault line) across the top
                Maybe you could simply change the names of some regular foods and give them disaster-themed monikers (e.g. hurricane stew).
                There are also cocktail recipes with "hurricane" and "tornado" in the names.

                Of course, there's always bottled water and canned goods!

                  Serve some Mudslides alongside those Hurricanes.
