Seeking a Renaissance in San Francisco

Falafel Bar

During my week of family fun, we split up the cooking duties so one or two people weren’t cooking the whole week.  For my shift, I decided to organize a Falafel Bar.  With large groups, it gets hard to prepare detailed meals everyday.  It’s easier to put out fixins for a meal that everyone can assemble themselves.  A Falafel Bar was the perfect option for us and offered a variety from our usual Indian meals.  Here are the fixins I put out, along with the recipes for some of the ingredients:

The prep didn’t require too much time and the ingredients were fresh.  The hummous, baba ganoush, muhammara, and tzatziki remained surprisingly fresh even a few days later – they proved to be yummy leftovers!  Here are a couple of photos from the dinner.

    Hi Shruti, What a fabulous idea … and it looks gorgeous. We usually set up “grazing bars” during the holidays, but this takes it in a whole new direction. And you introduced me to a new taste sensation – muhammara. Thanks! All the best, Terri

    Thank you – Another good option for large groups is a ‘Taco Bar’ with fixins!
