A salad bar? You can use different pieces of SA to display salad toppings and you can leave some items whole so guests can use the tools themselves to chop or cut or snip, etc. Plus you could use the Chillzanne pieces for stuff that should stay cold. Just my 2 cents. HTH
YOu could do a burger bar. Grill up burgers, then demo all kinds of products to make toppings and maybe a dessert or something. You can do the v-shaped cutter on peppers for: ketchup in a red pepper, mustard in a yellow pepper and relish in a green pepper. Use the slice and grate for onions or maybe the food chopper. I LOVE those kind of shows. You could put various toppings in the Simple Additions pieces too. Good luck!
Okay, I don't know what part of the country you are in, but I'm in AZ and the thought of grilling or cooking anything by the pool in the middle of summer doesn't sound very appealing.
If I were you I would keep it heat-free. I would do a Savory Sandwich ring (there is another variation of this sandwich I think it is fiesta or something). You would make the bread ring at your house before the party then make the dressing and assemble the sandwich. I would serve it in the Chillzanne Sectional Server. I might also do an Ice Cream pie (they were the Celebrations from last Spring/Summer) there are lots of varieties of the pie.
What about fruit kabobs with the hawaiian dip??? " All the Best " recipe book. You could do a hawaiian themed pool party. You could even toss a few door prizes in the pool for people to dive for. The goal would be to find the best prize. Citrus peelers...i slices...hand lotion or soaps would sink well. I think people would get a kick outta it. Make them feel like kids again. Just an idea.
Yes, Arizona is the desert. It is hot as heck here!! It starts in March. It is already over 80 degrees here and only getting hotter.
When I was growing up we lived about 10 minutes from the Canadian border in Maine. We were stationed at an AFB outside of Limestone, ME. I miss it ALOT!! I love the snow and the close proximity to wilderness.
I love the savory sandwich ring for summer shows; I also love the Berries and Wonton cups, Ice Cream ANYTHING, and also I've got a recipe from some cookbook that's strawberry & Spinach salad and it's really yummy!! (And I HATE salad)
I'd even if you are goign to do any grilling let them use the rubs on the meats and then people can try them, you'll be surprised at how well grilling tools and spices you'll sell!!
The spinach strawberry salad is wonderful. When I first saw it I thought..."what a waste of a good strawberry"...but we had it at a cluster meeting and it was really good. I have made it several times for my ladies group at church. It is a good show recipe too.
