Dear C to the 3,
A lot will depend on your skill in the kitchen and the time you want to spend in the kitchen OR AWAY from your In-Laws! To feed that many, you are probably best with a family style meal. All that seafood brings to mind Paella, the Spanish rice, chicken, sausage and seafood dish, Bouillabaisse – French seafood stew, Cacciucco- Italian seafood stew or Gumbo – Cajun seafood stew. I just recently had a dish in NY that was Shrimp, Lobster, artichoke and mushrooms all in a red sauce over linguine. The Classic Clambake would hit the spot but it takes all day.
If I had the resources of fresh seafoods and knew all attending liked seafood I would probably propose this menu
Tossed garden salad with locally grown produce
Italian breads, olive oil, olives or olive tapenade.
Fresh Berry Pie ala mode (local) or Triramisu
don’t forget the Lemoncello liquor for after dinner.
It ain’t no party until the Lemoncello is gone !!!!
