We picked Spain (yay! my favourite country after I spent a semester in Barcelona!) and 'Asia'. Yes, I know that Asia is not a country. Somehow we ended up needing one more country, and couldn't quite decide on one Asian country. Embarrassing. Anyways, my darling husband selected eight different beers for us at the local beer store, and I was on the hook for the food.
At the last minute I decided on baked brie with dates and chorizo, cheese straws (which are totally not Spanish or Asian), and pain con tomate, which is one of my favourite appetizers. It's super easy - toasted baguettes with tomato and garlic rubbed on, drizzled with olive oil and sea salt. We had a great evening, and it would be a great theme to tweak or perhaps re-create with wine or desserts. Ohh - a country themed dessert party sounds amazing!!
