    Hello JuliaC and welcome to Chef Talk.

    You've posted a cooking question in the Welcome Forum (which is for introducing yourself), so I'm moving it to a better forum.

    Good luck with your meal!

    Wow! Maybe you should narrow it down for us a bit. What are you thinking about serving and then we can provide suggestions. I mean I can do a whole menu but it would be me, not you. Are you comfortable doing this alone? Are you looking for plates like Thomas Keller or Sarah Stegner? Stuff like that.
