bookclub reading "the help" what to serve
not sure if this is right forum but if anyone has read the help what would you serve to "go with" the book...and i have a vegetarian in my group
so far i have deviled eggs, pulled pork and a "fake" pork one,
either choc cake or caramel cake
Pimento cheese. open-face sandwiches, or on crackers.
and red velvet cake.
OH! and this is such a terrific book. I am looking forward to the movie next month.
Having lived in the South for 16 years, I can highly recommend cheese straws. Definitely deviled eggs and 'minner (Pimento) cheese served with celery sticks.
See if you can get your hands on a book "Baing Dead is No Excuse, The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral" by Metcalfe & Hays. It's a great read with loads of real recipes - any of which would be perfect for your Book Club meeting.
Personally, I would substitute chicken salad for the pulled pork. Chicken Salad is THE penultimate Southern Lady Luncheon dish.
