I have gotten myself into something by agreeing to do this party... Its a fashion show and Im asked to put together Passed Horderves for 75...

Do you have any recommendations for quick, elegant and simple recipes? And also how much food do I need?

Thank you!!!

This need to be not drippy and rather elegant. What kind of budget?

To figure how much, I also need to know when it starts and how long it lasts, as well as what will be drunk.

My budget is $200 or so for 50-75 people... Also I wrote you in the feeding 300 form for a aids walk for 300... I would love any help and be glad to make a donation!

Thank you!

Ashonti, I answered the creole pasta question already- tough menu for that event- as I suggested, walking burritos or tacos would be a simpler choice.

If you make some of the items yourself, you can do pretty well.

Typical here would be crostini and bruschettas; stuffed mushrooms or figs, tiny stuffed tomatoes or new potatoes, maybe spinach Parmesan squares from this site. Really good large olives. Bacon-wrapped anything.

Have a look at these sites:

Hope this helps.

By the way, for passed h.d., you want about 8 bites for the first hour and 6 for any additional hour.
