Black Tie and Kebabs

Postby Fatmat » Sun Apr 07, 2013 8:06 pm

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for some funky mass catering ideas. I'm an amateur who dabbles in mass catering. I've agreed to do the catering for a do for a load of firemen - 100 guests expected.

It's a black tie bash at the firestation and for fun we are going with kebabs - I was planning on doing slow cooked lamb shoulder smeared in homemade tikka paste. I was also going to do slow cooked pork belly with smoked paprika, fennel and garlic.

Does anybody have any funky ideas for other dishes, either main or accompaniments? I'm trying to avoid the usual Potato Salad and Slaw if I can avoid it.

Thanks in advance,

Mat

I'd start with a bean dish for a carb - Boston Baked Beans or something along those lines.

In the Spring, I like roasted zucchini with salsa verde. Olive oil, garlic, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, parsley and a little mint.
Fashionably late will be stylishly hungry.

I like the idea... but have comedy visions of crisp white shirts generously drizzled in bean juice - I suppose that lashings of kebab fat to follow will complete the picture!!!

I'm trying to have a think about turning the kebab shop thing into some ideas... admittedly that is as far as I've got - except I'm going to make some kebab sauces to be classily served from ebay plastic squeezy bottles.

Served marinaded and cold? that would work well as a filler/salad in the pitta breads.
