balancing the dinner buffet menu
Need your help please in planing a buffet dinner for sixteen coming up in October. Thought I'd cook either beef Bourguignon or beef tenderloin with roasted root vegetables -- I fancy the rich wine sauce, but need another main dish as an alternative. I was thinking of a pork and orange casserole with a pilau rice, but do you think that would be too rich? Should I serve something plain to contrast with the beef dish, and should I also serve a salad? Your suggestions will be apreciated. I plan on small nibbles and finger food for appetizers and a choice of two desserts to follow.
