Pirate themed food
Most restaurants do NOT work with themes, most caterers do.......
chocolate coinschocolate coins
saw them in the holiday chocolate section of costco last week

Planks of ......danish rye crisp with preserved fish, capers.....
Fried Smelts with aioli, it's the small fishes thing that seems piratey
Barrels of Rum......rum cake.....
X.....as in x marks the spot.....peppers....hmmmmm
Several years ago I catered a costume party for a prominent theatre group.....we had figures with costumes on the serpentine tables, makeup cases which could have been chests. I'll see if I can dig up old pix, it would have translated into a pirate theme fairly easily.
Kids......my middle son had a great pirates party when he was 5. Pirate hats, treasure buried in a sandbox, watermelon boat, skewers, balloon swords, eye patches, goldfish around the edge of a blue jell topped cake with brown sugar island and lego pirates in boats......southern Louisiana, we had all kinds of beads from Mardi Gras.....
saltine crackers come to mind
some fish...sea bass, mackerel,
and some potato
clams, oysters, mussels
certainly no fruit...they all got scurvy
oh and mad props to schroom girl, just read over your responses i think you're spot on
I'm not really sure what they eat in Somallia, given its location I would guess its something inbetween Morrocan and Middle Eastern. So problably some stews and an accompanying either rice or pasta dish.
The pirates being on the sea probably have more fish, so maybe some kind of fish stew, with bold spices, such as cinnamon or all spice. Or since they are rich from hijacking all these ships and demanding million dollar ransoms maybe a lobster and shrimp stew.
This is interesting....Ship's Biscuit or Hard Tack
Date: c. 1829
Item No: ABB0003
Neg No: D4001
The common seaman's diet each day was 1lb (450 g) of ship's biscuit, 4lbs (1.8 kg) of beef, 2lbs (907 g) of pork, 2lbs (907 g) of peas, 1.5lbs (680 g) of oatmeal, 6oz (170 g) of sugar and 6oz (170 g) of butter, and 12oz (340 g) of cheese a week. However, these provisions were not fresh and often rotten after months at sea. The biscuit, also known as 'hard tack', would often contain weevils or maggots and sailors would tap their biscuits on the table to knock most of the weevils out before eating. In addition to the food, the sailor also received a gallon of beer a day.
What about fish or live chickens? When did citrus become an essential element to elimenating scurvy?
I am planning a Pirate Party for a crew of 10 yo's and it will be in the Park next to a BIG playground Ship....and once we hoist our jolly roger it shall be a PIRATE SHIP! AHOY!
so we shall have crackers (hard tack)
Cackle Fruit (boiled eggs)
Sausages (on the park BBQ are a must have lunch not themed I know)
Balled Edam Cheese cut to wedges
a treasure chest cake
with of course chocolate coins for bouty!!!
a corset and black skirt with boots will be the sum of my wenches costume
and RUM PUNCH (without the rum of course)
I mix it in a large drink dispenser so there isn't any pulp involved or it clogs it up)

1.2ltre Mountain Dew
1.2 Litre Lemonade
1.2 litre Traditional Ginger Beer
1.2 litre Passiona soft drink
you can throw in Passionfruit and tropical fruit pulp to taste.
