This wasn’t your average potluck dinner. This was a themed, well-designed dinner party among friends. So with four of “my girls” and their significant others coming together for great food and great conversation, it was memorable evening. that even Cahier du Cinéma, that august and influential French film magazine, would have lauded, had André Bazin, himself, had he had ability to time travel to attend and review the dinner.
The FoodBeest wants you to have a festive holiday season with yummy foods. Here are two good new party foods for you. The first is a seasonal Pear and Cheese Flatbread. The second is a Siracha Mary Shrimp: a cross between a Siracha blood mary and a 21st Century shrimp cocktail. Both are fast and easy. Both are forgiving if you do something “wrong.” Both are finger foods. Both are yummy.
When I started thinking about party food in general and finger party food, in particular, I went combing through cookbooks and the Internet for recipes. I found recipes that were old and new; some were good and others maybe not so good.
