I am living in Chicago right now and I've been taking improv classes. Well, I invited my 11 classmates (along with 5 or so significant others) over for a French dinner chez moi. I would really like some advice for the menu. I studied in Avignon in college, so I wanted to incorporate a Provençale theme to the menu. What I want to do is start with bread, have a salad with a dijon dressing, beets, radishes, and olives, and then have ratatouille, tofu quiche, and chocolate crepes or an apple tart for dessert.
Here are my questions:
1) How many quiches should I make to feed roughly 16 people? I'll be having all the other food, so it'll be a smallish portion each. What do you think?
2) Does anyone have a fail-proof tofu quiche recipe? I've made one a few times, and I've liked it, but I think it could be just WOW.
3) Does anyone know where to buy pre-made vegan crusts? I am in Chicago, so there are a lot of options available to me. I sadly lost my rolling pin, or I would just want to make it from scratch.
4) Best crepes?
I think that's about it.
I love this community! Thank you!
