Around the World Party
Hi Chowhounders! I am planning an "Around the World" dessert party where I will be pairing a traditional dessert with two beverages (one alcoholic and one non-alcoholic) from as many different countries as possible!
After spending the last three hours trying to put together a list of traditional beverages and desserts from around the world, my head is spinning and I am sick of google-ing.
I would love your ideas for this party! Please list the country and any traditional beverages/desserts that would represent that country. I don't need recipes, just ideas! Thanks!
Austria: Linzer torte with Eiswein and Viennese coffee (Wiener melange)
