Help Us Make Julia Child Proud

On Saturday, I'm having a french themed cooking party. The idea is that we all cook collaboratively to make a meal together. So far we have five confirmed guests. So far we Cassoulet and Reiene de Saba (cake) on the menu. Please suggest ideas for menu items and ways to pull off the timing. I have an induction cook top with five burners, two ovens, a fairly large kitchen with lots of counter space, and most basic cooking implements-but if there's something specialized you think I should have, please share that too! Also I own mastering the art of French cooking and the joy of cooking so I'd like to stick to recipes in those cookbooks or available on the web! thanks!

Big party. Small budget.

I'm organizing a monthly event where I will be feeding appetizers to up to 100 people. I'm a good cook, who will have much of the food pre-prepared. Unfortunately, I have a negligible budget. I need what is prepared to be tasty and diverse crowd pleasers, using ingredients that are as inexpensive as possible -- possibly available in bulk -- while still containing some protein. Carbs should be fairly healthy, unrefined, inexpensive ones. There can be some items made with flour, but not to excess. There will also need to be vegetarian dishes. Extra points for food that can be frozen and prepared as needed. I am a good cook, have a wide variety of spices, etc., rice for basmati and sushi. I also have good access to Indian, Asian, and Mexican supermarkets. I'm fine with doing extensive cooking in advance, so long as what I have is both affordable and easy-to-serve on the night of the event. Any ideas / recipes?

Cupcake Candyland

I'm throwing a Cupcake Candyland party that promises to be a sugar&booze fueled shindig of over-the-top girliness. I have questions about cupcakes that aren't really cupcakes, gluten-free cupcake recipes, frosting & decorating, and pink cocktails that utilize homemade grenadine. [more inside]
