They're doing a diversity week, looking at all the different nationalities in our community and have asked us to send in food from different countries for the children to try. Chinese, Indian, Italian, etc, sweet or savoury, but must be served cold.

Any brilliant suggestions as to what I could send in? I guess buffet style finger food will be best.

Falafel and humous. Middle Eastern type food. Yummy. smile

Baklava? But has nuts so not sure if ok. Delicious though.... smile

Oh yes, houmous. Lovely.

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 20-Sep-12 13:12:04

I sense a theme. grin

RoobyMurray Thu 20-Sep-12 13:13:02

oh yes, you're right, no nuts allowed.

kids like hummous don't they?

I live in a large Jewish area, I wonder if there's any kosher recipes that would be suitable?

or our families are of scottish and welsh extraction, so maybe I should reflect that?

I would do pizza. But then I'm a minimal effort sort of person.

Chopped liver

I'd go for even less effort and buy some pains au chocolat.

Sliced salami, potato salad, crusty bread.

I love pickled ginger, its my favourite part of the whole sushi scoffing. grin

You could make some scones or Scotch pancakes for Scottishness, but I draw the line at haggis or black pudding.

Or lava bread for some welshness.

Some mini pain au chocolat would probably go down a treat though and easy to buy bake.

Coconut ice, tablet, haggis,Welsh cakes, cheese and leek quiche..... Something to reflect your heritage. Failing that jerk chicken wings!

sausage rolls

Welsh cakes are easy (DH is Welsh so I did them on our multi-cultural day!) and unless you are in Wales no-one else will think of them smile

If you are in a large Jewish area, the Jewish parents will be sending in chopped liver and gefilte fish matzos and things, so I would definitely do something Welsh or Scottish. Welsh cakes? Bara brith (sp?)? Tablet?

Only4theOlympics Thu 20-Sep-12 13:54:57

Only do tablet if the food tasting will be a long time before home time. You really don't want to be dealing with that sugar high or the comedown (i bloody love tablet though)

Ching He Huan does a really good recipe for chicken spring rolls using filo pastry instead of spring roll wrappers. They're dead easy to make (you just bake them, not fry) and taste lovely cold. DS (aged 2.5) eats them - you can serve with a bit of sweet chilli sauce to dip in...

Or samosas? Pretty easy to make and most kids I know seem happy to eat them. Or what about making Raita and naan? Or getting some tatziki and flatbreads?

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 20-Sep-12 14:45:36

Can someone explain what tablet is please? I've never heard of it. smile

Wigeon Thu 20-Sep-12 14:54:40

Scottish Tablet


Skivvytomany Thu 20-Sep-12 14:56:40

I was going to say tablet too. Mmmmmh homemade tablet.

Tahini (in hummus) has sesame seeds in it, which may be verboten if nuts are.

Allalonenow Thu 20-Sep-12 15:46:57

My local M&S do packs of mini Welsh Cakes, so you would not even have to cook, also easy to transport to school.

TheOneWithTheHair Thu 20-Sep-12 15:57:37

Scottish tablet does look and sound great.

I'm also sadly really impressed by that google thing but I can't work out if you're being helpful or sarcastic. confusedgrin
