boychef, Sounds like you have a bit of a problem... "I thought of steaming it for a short period of time with the plastic wrap on so that the protein outside can coagulate and hold it's shape. Then i seal it and finish in the oven. But i'm afraid due to the moist cooking method, the breadcrumbs inside will turn all soggy during steaming." Out of the 3 methods you offered this one looks the best but you may want to rethink the breadcrunb filling. There are other fillings...

Jook, yes that is the best way (IMO) to eat them. They are cured with lime, black tea and charcoal ash and take 100 days to cure, not 1000 years.

Mezzaluna, Thanks for the greeting. I will enjoying this site to its fullest. Best regards,
boychef, I think that organizing this event is a great lesson for you in menu planning. Most hotels/resorts/restaurants work on tight budgets and you have to be able to get the most for your money. With that said, along with your ideas you should consider the following, Noodles Pad Thai - very low cost item Soups Minestrone Gazpacho Corn chowder Salads Fresh tomatoes with basil pesto Panzanella (Tuscan bread salad) Entrees Chicken mole (Mexico) Thai curries...
boychef, Yes where are you? By using the "100 pax" I am gonna say somewhere in Asia (along with your menu choices). I worked in Vietnam for a year, if you are near please respond and I'll offer up some buffet items that we offered at the resort. Cheers.
