I have a host who just moved into a Japanese home with a tiny Japanese (gas) oven (that she doesn't know how to use yet) and a Japanese microwave (different wattage than US microwaves). She has a cooking show scheduled for Friday night, but is asking for a demo that does NOT require the use of an oven or a microwave! I told her if we could melt chocolate in her microwave, we could do an ice cream social. She was all happy about that, until she figured out that we'd have to use her freezer for the stones. Yup, you guessed it ... she has a tiny Japanese fridge with a super tiny freezer. (The Japanese do not shop like we do, they go to the grocery store EVERY day for dinner, breakfast & lunch ... the go again tomorrow for dinner, breakfast & lunch! They do not buy in quantity like Americans do, so they don't need the storage space like we do.) So, here's the challenge! She doesn't want to use the oven or the stovetop AT ALL! She's always had electric and the thought of using gas to cook when she hasn't had time to practice is freaking her out. I told her that I was raised with a gas stove, but she didn't care. It's out. We can melt stuff in the microwave, but she's completely against COOKING anything in the microwave. I don't even think that the Deep Covered Baker would fit. I'm pretty much restricted to the small micro cooker, the 2 cup prep bowls or the 1 cup prep bowls and maybe the small batter bowl. Come on Cheffers. Help me out here! I had the idea to do the Fruit Topped Triple Chocolate Pizza, but that would mean that I have to do the cookie ahead of time for her. I also thought about doing brownies in the mini muffin pan at home & then letting the guests do peanut stars on top with the Easy Accent Decorator ... but again, I'm doing all the work at home & their part is pretty boring. I certainly do NOT want people thinking that I'm in the business of catering. :yuck: I need some ideas of what the guests can do that will make it fun and challenging! My host last weekend wanted the After Dinner Mint Triangles but she couldn't find the Almond Bark. She didn't know what it was, so she bought almond flavored cookies instead that we crumbled & mixed it in as a substitute. We also had to substitute mint flavoring for peppermint since she couldn't find peppermint at the base grocery store either. It was okay, but just wasn't "right". So I don't want to do that one again. Any suggestions that follows the restrictions is GREATLY appreciated!
