Party Ideas: Chino-Latino Theme Parties

 
This is our third theme-oriented blog post, served with a Latin twist. If you're planning a company holiday party or an upcoming wedding, Saffron 59 offers Latin-influenced delicacies such as chicken adobo marinated in dark vinegar with pearl onions, Cuban-style pulled pork with paprika, scallop ceviche with lemongrass coconut dip, and Argentinaian-style grilled beef with parsley garlic pesto. Other great flavors include spicy chocolate mole, sangria with blood oranges and fresh peaches, rich and creamy dulce de leche, and exotic cocktails made with Patron tequila, rum, and ginger. We offer cocktails such as Kalamansi Saketinis and Lemongrass Ginger Cosmopolitans. The d├ęcor can be full of bright, warm colors and inviting, rich textiles to accent your tabletops and walls.
After your guests have eaten such sumptuous cuisine, they can take part in Latin dancing such as salsa, tango, and rumba—at one recent gathering, we hired a vibrant band Ola Fresca, led by Jose Conde and they filled the room with bright sounds and Cuban rhythms. We can hire professional instructors for these sensual dances. Let your guests loosen their hair and limbs and get down on the dance floor. (Just remember to stretch first!)

There are several empanada recipes here: From Argentina With Love, and you can take a look at Nika Boyce Studios website, full of sensual and richly detailed photos lovingly taken of Latin food.
