Birthday is the most important holiday for most of us. But over time, fantasy is exhausted, monotonous dishes appear on the table. I want something new, but no less tasty. What should be the birthday menu? What original can be put on the table, surprising guests?
The composition of the menu on the birthday
If you decide to celebrate your holiday at home, then you need to decide in advance which dishes and in what quantities you will cook. However, one should not overdo it and prepare too many various dishes, most likely, the case will not come to most of them. In addition, it should be relatively easy to prepare the dish, especially if you are engaged in cooking alone. Otherwise, you will be so tired that you no longer want a holiday or a festive table.
The choice of dishes for your birthday depends on the format of the event. Will you sit at the table all the time, or perhaps you want to make a buffet, and soon you will go on to an entertainment program and dance. In addition, it is necessary to take into account the age of your guests and the time of year. The colder it is on the street, the more food will be eaten.
Write on a piece of paper how much you want to make salads, how many snacks, hot. Moreover, try to cook as little as possible of the same type of dishes. For example, if you decide to make a traditional salad "Herring under a fur coat", you should not make another fish salad, for example, "Mimosa".
Traditional birthday meals
- First, of course, snacks. They should not be too much, their goal - not to kill the appetite before the main course, but rather to excite him. On the table will be enough three - five kinds of snacks.
- Secondly, it certainly salads. Enough will be three kinds of different salads. And it’s just great if these salads have different basis, for example, fish salad, vegetable and meat.
- Third, cutting. Slicing is not considered a separate dish, but it must always be present on the table. Do not make too many cuts of the same product - such dishes quickly weathered and spoil the overall look. It will be enough for 1 plate (depending on the number of people) of meat, fish, vegetable and cheese cuts.
- Fourth, a side dish must be present on the table for your birthday. At least one species. Most often, this is either mashed potatoes or potatoes baked with mayonnaise.
- Fifth, and this is practically the main dish on the table, hot. One kind of hot must be required. But you can cook and 2-3 species, for example.
- And the final chord of the holiday - dessert. On the holiday table, he must be required. It can be a cake, a pie, a variety of cakes or cookies, ice cream, jelly and puddings. Here, focus on the preferences of most guests. If you do not know their tastes, you can make two or three kinds of desserts to please everyone.
