My workplace are having an event in a few weeks where we all need to bring a dish. Theme is food around the world and a lot of the 'easy' dishes are already taken.

We're a fairly big office - 60 staff - so it needs to be something substantial-ish so people can all have a taste. Does anyone have any recipes that I might be able to pull off please?

Thank you it advance wine

onion bhajis
Spring rolls
Does it need to be finger food? Any facilities for heating things through?

So does it have to be something cold?

I do my version of ottolengis couscous, so Middle eastern, sort of. Lots of bits to do, but none of them tricky. Keep separate then assemble when required.

You need cous cous, prepared as normal (I use a sprinkling of boullion powder for extra flavour)

Whole almonds toasted until brown

Lots of finely sliced onions fried in oil until just going brown but still soft.
Cherry tomatoes fried in left over onion oil, keep whole but get some colour on.
Lemony dressing
Lots of chopped parsley
.. Combine just before serving, have extra parsley and olive oil to sprinkle on top and decorate with lemon wedges.

Thank you for the replies.

It doesn't have to be cold no. We have an oven and a microwave and I could take my slow cooker if needed.

What are you including in easy dishes that have already been taken?

Tablet. Like someone (Scottish) had looked at fudge and thought it looked a bit too healthy.
And so so good.

Greek salad?
Pumpkin pie?
Buy lots of spring rolls?

Nigella's pizza rustica, in how to be a domestic goddess. Substantial and vaguely Italian, also transports well.

hummous and crudites used to be my standby

A bag of chips - pretty well eaten all around the world.

Soda bread - either as loaves or make rolls, with Irish butter.

If a lot of people are bringing savoury dishes I'd be tempted to do something sweet. Tiramisu? Key lime pie?
