World Cup dinners

Out of the main bustle of the Coffee shop this is where people gather to share recipes and tips/tricks.

World Cup dinners

Postby foodlov » June 8th, 2010, 8:27 pm

Evening everyone, I posted on the world cup thread day about I am going to do dishes from the countries that are playing on the day, some days I will only do the evening games as OH wont be here to eat them :lol: (I think he will be more at home than work for the world cup) good job hes the only one he has to answer to and his mate is footy mad to. So I thought I would post the recipes on here the day or so before i cook them, feel free to add comments or suggestions, I really am just playing around with recipes and would be grateful for all the advice and tips: Dont want to do to much foood during the dayy sso only light snacks.Thanks

So I will start of with Friday 11th

South Africa v Mexico KO 3.00pm

Snacks from South Africa: devilled kidneys, and from Mexico pork and cheese quesadillas

Uruguay v France 7.30pm

Starter: French Tomato and basil gallets

Main: Urguay: Beef asado with rice

Dessert: French: Mousse au chocolat

Any suggestions for evening drinks will be grateful alcholic and non alcholic although OH will probably just stick to his beer.

Thanks I will try and post some photos to (if I can remember how to do it)

As I said before, what a great idea Jacky, and what a great thread. I will watch with interest how your dishes unfold. :chops: Drinks wise I would go tequila cocktails on a Mexican theme and have some Champagne on ice in case of a French victory if you feel that way inclined. :cocktail:

Jackie;
Love your ideas. Here in the Southern hemisphere I'm afraid we'll be watching games at 8am, 10 am and 12m.Bit early for anything except breakfast and brunch, I fear, but still - the football will be wonderful!
For Mexican drinkies, it has to be tequila - with lime quarters and salt. Make them all suffer when they have to (a) lick the salt ( you must curl your index finger into your thumb, then put the salt on the space you have there!) (b) suck the lime and (c) swig the tequila. For non-alcoholic drinks, there's always sangrita - equal parts of tomato juice and orange juice, with a pinch or two of chile powder. Then there's Agua de Jamaica - Hibiscus flowers, soaked in water, sugar added and drunk cold.
For your quesadillas, I'd add some ground, fresh, mild chiles if you can get them (Ancho, Pasilla, Guajillo) or, failing that, a good dose of commercial chile powder!

Thanks for the feedback, we are hoping for a French lost (seeing as they cheated Ireland out of the world cup) like the idea of the drinks.

Jacky - I was in Morrisons this evening looking at their recipe cards and immediately thought of you.

Carlos Tapas - spicy prawns with chorizo in red wine (just made it for OH)
Gael Quiche with blue cheese
Robin Van Pizza with green pesto & pepperoni

Okay, a bit corny but World Cup related so thought it was worth a mention. :D

Slightly off topic but just to avoid any problems during the games.

Right girls, Imagine you are in Primark queueing in single file.The girl in front of you doesn't have her purse. To your utter dismay you suddenly realise you don't have yours either. A solution is that your friend at the back of the queue is offering to throw her purse to you, but you can't queue jump until her purse has been thrown to you. Once the purse has been thrown, you can quickly dodge the lass in front then confront the girls on the desk. That's right girls, the OFFSIDE RULE in a language you understand, now don't interupt us in the next 4 weeks asking stupid bloody questions

Yep - I think it was Robert Green. :scared: :scared:

Well despite thinking it might be nice to do national food for each game, my son's mates kept arriving in herds yesterday, so after the Argentina game, we decided on Chile con Carne. 3 1/2 kgs of minced meat, 4 tins of beans and enough garlic bread to stink the place out for a week. I also made a fresh salsa with some wonderfully spicy fresh chiles I found at the market.
There's one portion left - we fed 21 on that lot!!
Plus 4 crates of beer, 2 bottles rum....

Hello :D

I've just been googling Algerian recipes, tonight we're having a street party for the match and every house participating is making something. I've decided to do this dish

http://www.whats4eats.com/soups-and-stews/harira-recipe

I have the spices in the cupboard and celery and tomatoes in the fridge, all I need is lamb, chickpeas and lentils, I'm going to cheat and use tinned chickpeas 8-)

Hi guys,

We've been invited to friends tonight for the footie & a meal. Apparently we are being served steak, chips & mushrooms. What could be better.

Last Saturday, we had friends come to us for footie & I made a huge pot of curry.

To me the food is the best part of the football!!!!! :chef:

Jacky - I'm just about to get stuck into preparing bacon & potato cakes for our brunch this morning. The England game is at 9.30am here, so we decided to watch the game first and eat afterwards. I haven't managed anything better than a chile con carne for the hordes over here.

Hi Bazzer,

How do you cook your humbles? I've heard they can be a bit hard to swallow if not prepared right.

All depends on freshness. Did you buy in or shoot your own?

I'm not a member of the local hunting club, so I can't shoot my own, and it's not the custom here for huntsmen to sell their catch. Naturally enough the local cash and carries don't sell them either. However, the president of the local hunt club is a friend, and he is only too happy to deprive his dogs and let me have them free of charge.

C'mon Baz - you forgot the drop scones for Robert Green.
Duck a la mode for John Terry (as he let Müller go past him)
White bait for the rest of the team who were too chicken to hassle the other team.
Bloody useless bunch of wallies!
