I have a hostess that loves Italian food and wants to host a couples Italian themed show. My creative side is missing somewhere. I was hoping that someone might have some good ideas. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA!!!

Im planning to do that, and she is planning to make a few recipes herself. I was looking for more suggestions as far as theme decorations, and games, etc.

Use the oil dipping set! That's a great one. You can also serve piping-hot, fresh-from-the-oven bread with the oil dipping set. Serve coffee and biscotti at the show! Play some Italian music in the background ("That's Amore!")

For games you can get those candy-colored almonds (you will see these at Italian Catholic weddings a lot) and pass them out to people during a trivia game or something.

One of our awesome executive directors in NE mentioned this at one of our meetings. She suggested have a summer "barefoot in ITaly" party. Come in your barefeet and have wine (always a good idea) and make a pizza...whatever variety your host wants. HTH!

Bake bread in the bread tube ahead of time--have your host put it in 1 1/2 hours before the show. The whole house will smell like fresh bread. Put in a second loaf about 1/2 hour before the show, it will be ready about the time your demo is over and you'll have two warm loaves to serve. I put pre-made basil pesto in a small square and put out my spreaders. I don't think it's a good idea to let the host do extra recipes--it makes it look like being a host is alot of work. Keep it simple to get more bookings. Plus, it reinforces that PC will simplify cooking--you want people to think "Wow, I can throw this great meal together in no time!" not "I bet Jane spent all day in the kitchen getting ready for this!"
