I wonder if anyone can give me some suggestions please. I am going to host a dinner party
for friends. My theme is Agatha Christie. I need some suggestions for food to serve - I need
a starter, main course and dessert. I have looked in my Agatha Christie novels for
inspiration but so far I haven't really got anywhere. I have decided to serve cocktails when
they arrive and would maybe like the setting to be the 1920's/30's.
Any ideas would be gratefully received.
Hmm you can try a classic English roast as a main
course. Be sure to include sage and onion stuffing!
What a fun idea!
Trfle with Hundreds and Thousands.
that should be Trifle :o)
By now the dinner has long since been thoroughly digested, but the idea is a good one, so let's see: one item that comes to mind is "seed cake." (As far as I can tell, the seeds are poppy, but could be caraway: research may be needed.) If dinner can include breakfast items, steak and kidneys, or kippers. Marmalade,of course. And Poirot has boiled eggs, though all must be of the same size. So far, this is merely off the top of my (bald---I'm using a pseudonym) head, but a good many food items receive passing mention, and if anybody is still interested, I'll watch for some of them. (Oh, and "sirop"!)
