grab a friend and get fancy

Well friends, it's that time again. I've been hearing a lot of possibilities of dinner parties- who's going for it? We're having a revolution! Drop the busy moment and get some folks at your table. You won't regret it, except for in the moment when the kitchen's a mess, the canapes fell on the floor, and the guests are at the door. But what is life if not an adventure? Who's with me here?
So what's the culinary challenge? Here we go....
Pick a country- cook the food. Japanese? Finnish (got your smelts ready?) Turkish? Go for it.
You might choose to work from one cookbook the whole way through, or you can find food from varied sources. Feel free to extend the theme to the decor, your clothes, whatever strikes you.
Then tell us about it! Posting date is November 15. And keep us in the loop along the way. Are you new to the challenge? Loose, made to be broken rules can be found here.


  1. Ooh! I want to participate! You know what would be fun, 'round about the middle of November when everything is bleak and cold? JAMAICAN. Or anything from the Carribean, really. I am now all atwitter at the possibilities!

  2. Oh, Jamaican, I love it. All those jerk spice blends, right?
