street food dinner party
Hi there! I'm thinking about having 3-4 families over for a dinner party. I thought i'd be fun to do a "street" food theme. Should I stick to one region--Say Asia or Latin America--or should I mix it up? If I have to pick a region I'd probably lean toward Asia. Would love your suggestions, ideas, and recipes please--also, I'd love to get a few recipes for dishes that I could make ahead as well. Thank you!!
If you want to do SE Asian, you got lots and lots of choices. I think one region might be better as than the flavour profiles would be similar, BUT if one person for instance doesn't like a certain spice or condiment, he/she might just have a hard time finding something he likes. So that would be an argument for mixing and matching.
If we stick with SE Asia, think satay, fish cakes, spring rolls, stir fries, curries etc etc.... If you want some recipes, let me know...
If you go away from the Asia idea, you could look at tapas (spain) or mezze (greek)
