    I will be hosting a wedding reception and need a good rice dish, easily plated and good looking to be served with a chicken cordon bleu and a veg.  Any ideas anyone?

    Hello Doug, and welcome to Chef Talk. I hope you return to the Welcome Forum to tell us a bit about yourself.

    I'll move your thread, as your message is mainly a request for information about cooking.

    I don't know what sauce you are serving ? It would help with the rice idea...or maybe there is no sauce ?

    Cranberry/orange & zest of orange/ fresh parsley plated cone shaped......(or omit the cranberry)

    Thanks people. I like all the ideas and especially the cone shape. Part of our problem that Neglected to include is we are in the Dominican Republic and don't have the resources at our finger tips but we can make do, again, thanks.

    Chef Bill-Were you saying you would use swiss cheese in the Cordon bleu? I had planned on it but was puzzling over the meat. We have access to some German butchers and some Wesphalian ham is nice but pricey. I think the Venetian rice sounds great thanks.
