Olympic figure Skating menu

Thinking of having the girls over to watch figure skating. Any suggestions for a themed menu?

        Dorothy Hamil-Swiss on Charlie White or Massimo Scali Bread sandwiches
        Rachel Flattbread
        Corned Beef on Rye-sacek
        Biscotti Hamilton cookies
        Zamboni Spumoni Ice Cream Cohens
        Alexander Smirnov vodka
        Jane Torvill and Christopher Baked Beans
        John Curried Squash Soup (if you all are old enough to remember the great John Curry)
        Joannie Brochettes

          1. re: normalheightsfoodie

            Crepes Suzette, or anything else served Fleming.

          2. re: greygarious

            Something Thai for Tai Babolonia (no idea how to spell it, I just remember her being very attractive)

        1. Anything with 8 ingredients to represent figure eights.

          1. skate wings.
            pork and beef dishes (sow-cow. olympic bonus if you create a braised or casseroled dish called triple sow-cow)
            iced milk-shakes
            cocktails with plenty of bitters.

              Love the sow-cow. Could be a boeuf bourgignon, or any braise that includes cured pork. Serve shave ice for dessert.

            2. What about making things from Brian Boitano's show, What Would Brian Boitano make? There were some good appetizers on it. The recipes are all on food network.

              1. Thanks all, that is a great start. I knew the board would come through.

                1. You could do a Fire'n'Ice party menu... Spicy Chilled Shrimp, Gazpacho, Sizzling Fajitas (a la Dorothy Hamil) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/pa... ; Baked Alaska, Crepes Suzette, Hot Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream
