World Class Buffet

Buffet  

Nations competing against each other in sporting events, whether in soccer, the Olympics or other sports, remind us that wonderful things happen when diverse cultures share. International cuisine is the perfect example of such enrichment, the inspiration for our World Class Buffet.

These recipes combine some of the world's most distinctive seasonings for a versatile dinner buffet that is at once adventurous and familiar, sophisticated yet simple to make. With this menu, the evening can be as formal or relaxed as the setting and mood dictate.

Above all, it shows us how, despite regional and cultural differences, there is great harmony when it all comes together.
