Eat Me, Drink Me: A Bridal Shower In Ten Pairings

In this feature, we take one food in three directions: sweet, savory and a spin. Sounds easy if you’re talking tomatoes — but a sweet burger? And with the spin, you may be in for a culinary adventure … or an atrocity. You just never know.

November 26 marks the 150th anniversary of the day Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson gifted a handwritten manuscript entitled “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground” to his colleague’s daughter, Alice Pleasance Liddell. The next year, Dodgson published this collection of wild adventures under the pen name Lewis Carroll and one of your founding foodies most loved books was born.

We’re celebrating “Alice In Wonderland” this month with food inspired by the whimsical, poetic novel. And this week, we kick off the series with a grand event: Amy’s “Eat Me, Drink Me”-themed bridal shower.

We made miniature foods served with tiny drink pairings … ten of them, to be precise! We let our imaginations run wild, using Amy’s life and our friendship with her as inspiration. There were Coney dogs with root beer floats, to honor her home state of Michigan. We also made mini pizzas with Orange Crushes, reminiscent of her summers in Dewey Beach. There were even deviled quail eggs — a nod to one of her favorite party foods to make (and eat!)

It sounds like a lot of work, but with a few short cuts and lessons learned, throwing a party with mini foods can be done. Now … for a trip down the rabbit hole.
