Brunch question

j

I have been asked to Brunch and need to bring something that can be shared among twelve. I do not want to cook. Any suggestions for a take-out item (with associated restaurant) that I could bring? I would like to bring something hearty. No restrictions, Interesting but not too unusual would be great.

THANKS

    You could purchase three quiches from a supermarket? That's easy enough to share out.

    More unusal would be to pick up frozen dumplings in Chinatown and steam them in steamer baskets, and serve with hot mustard and soy-laced dumpling sauces.

      I like the dumpling idea; any favorite spots in Chinatown?

        Qing Hua. Definitely.

        Another option would be the Tourte Provencal at Patisserie de Gascogne. You'd probably need 2 to serve 12 people, or you could get one tourte and one quiche there.

      What about some Australian Pie from TA? Always a crowd pleaser and definitely hearty.

        The Australian Pie is great idea. How many would you think I would need? Any suggestions on which varieties are the best? Thanks
