For our tasting, we decided on 1) Things we wanted to eat and 2) Things we thought the majority of our guests would not mind eating.  (so nothing exotic or too spicy for the cousins)  I would pick things for the tasting that you could see creating a cohesive menu.  No use tasting the potstickers if you think you want Italian food, right?  And to decide that unifying theme, think about what you order at restaurants, what kind of food do you cook at home?  What do you generally like best?

Hope this helps!

we did our from a price advantage we know our price point per plate. so anything above it we crossed off. then we narrowed down to what we knew everyone would eat, roast chicken, chicken breast,pasta,salad, and of course our traditional new mexican food green chile chicken enchiladas, spanish rice, beans, and homemade tortillas.  after tasting everything and, checking portion sizes, cost, and plate presentation, and sitting there eating for literally 2 hours!!! we chose our ENCHILADAS!! and no they are the sloppy looking mess from mexican restaurants they were plated beautifully!!!! and we know everyone will enjoy them and out out of town guest can have some tradtional new mexican food too!!!

We chose based on what we liked most. We also picked things for the majority, as well as, vegetarian appetizers and entrees. For appetizers, we kept them pretty light, so guests wouldn’t feel too full or greasy (since they’ll be finger foods).
