A BYOF – bring your own food- party is a great way of getting together with friends, but it does also make you ponder the question of which food to bring to a friends’ party? We’ve have put together a list of scrumptious foods that rarely fail when laid on a party table.
Middle Eastern dishes – borek and falafel
Borek, a cheesy herbed filo pastry, is a Turkish dish that is a favourite at any social gathering. Whether you choose a coriander or nigella seed filling, these crispy snacks will have everyone heading back for more. On the other hand, falafel is a type of middle-eastern croquette that is made from ground chickpeas and a variety of herbs and spices. Its ball form and deep-fried goodness are balanced with yoghurt and cucumber.
The finest Vietnamese snacks – spring rolls and bahn mi
The humble bahn mi is the perfect answer to the question of which food to bring to a friends’ party. This Vietnamese sandwich consists of juicy grilled chicken and salad nestled in a crispy baguette. Visit Paper Rice Vietnamese Kitchen to stock up on these tasty sandwiches before your next event. You could also add bite-size Vietnamese spring rolls to your menu. These are made by rolling rice noodles, lettuce and shrimp into a cigar shape in a sheet of rice paper. Serve these delectable appetisers with a soy and ginger dipping sauce.
Bring in a taste of Greece with dolmades and baklava
Dolmades, stuffed leaves, are the answer to transforming any party. When planning an appetising party food selection, it is important to choose dishes that are delicious and easy to eat. Finally, you can complete your social gathering with your friends with a sweet delicacy like baklava. This is a Greek pastry that is made by layering filo pastry with nuts before drenching it in honey and baking in the oven until it is sticky, crispy and mouth-wateringly good, making it easier to stop worrying about which food to bring to a friend’s party.
A bit of American bite with sliders and salad
Still baffled by which food to bring to a friend’s party? If your friends are fond of sweet and tangy fresh fruit and vegetables then a green papaya salad with plenty of fresh chilli and lime juice is the ultimate solution. Serve this alongside a tray of delicious sliders as these miniature burgers are available in many different filling styles including beef, chicken or shellfish.
Tandoori chicken and sushi make the ultimate finger foods
Your friends will thank you when you bring a platter of this rice, fish and seaweed dish. Place an order at Ichiban Sushi for some of the finest bites around. Another great option is the spicy Indian Tandoori chicken kebab, which gets its name from the tandoori oven it is cooked in. The chilli marinade on succulent chicken is a taste sensation.
