what to serve

Food & Drink - - GAME NIGHT DINNER -

Beer and cider are nat­u­ral choices for ca­sual en­ter­tain­ing. Chilling cans or bot­tles in a bucket of ice ties in with the ca­sual vibe and your bev­er­ages will chill much faster! The se­lec­tion for this menu in­cludes Rail­way City Dead Ele­phant IPA (LCBO 272104, 473 mL, $3.20), a nutty ale that would be per­fect with the roasted chick­peas. Cider’s ver­sa­til­ity with food is demon­strated here as it dove­tails ef­fort­lessly with the in­gre­di­ents in the spinach salad. The Thorn­bury Vil­lage Craft Ap­ple Cider

(LCBO 333583, 473 mL, $3.25) has a crisp de­liv­ery of ap­ple flavour that lifts the ba­con vinai­grette to a new level of de­li­cious­ness! To ac­com­pany the Jam­bal­aya Pasta, the award-win­ning

Wood­house Lager (LCBO 459537,

473 mL, $3.00) brings fruity notes and a re­fresh­ing fin­ish. Beer lovers know that a ro­bust and malty stout is an ex­cep­tional dessert pair­ing. Broad­head Dark

Horse Stout (LCBO 437244, 473 mL, $3.10) has a choco­latey sweet­ness that is sub­lime with the banana tof­fee pie.

For big groups, use your ta­ble as a buf­fet, and buy a stack of in­ex­pen­sive trays so guests can eat off their laps. FOOD AND RESTAU­RANT-SUP­PLY STORES STOCK CUTE (AND RE­CY­CLABLE) TAKE­OUT TRAYS, CAR­TONS AND BOXES THAT ARE PER­FECT FOR SERV­ING SNACKS.
