Chef David, you will have much better luck if you post in the Professional CATERING Forum....when you post add info.....what type of event, budget, locale, profile the group, time frame of event, etc....the more info the better the responses.

Most restaurants do NOT work with themes, most caterers do.......

Pirates didnt really eat very good. thats why they steal stuff. Just do man type food. Big hunks of meat with a bone to grab and carry it around with you and big goblets of rum....... dont forget the rum.

It is just like OCD, except the letters are in alphabetical order.

jerk seasoning is the first thing that comes to my mind. then a big chicken or turkey with its leg ripped off and yes a goblet of rum.

carve watermelons into pirate jack o lantern type sculptures, make the mouths wide open, scoop out melon balls from the flesh & serve them out of the mouth, tie a bandanna around the heads of the melons, use knives & various props to decorate them into pirate themes

Jerk chicken or pork is a historicly accurate and tasty item to offer ( let it "cure' a day or so, then Cold Smoke it before grilling). Tropical Carribean items are most suitible. Mashed Yams with spices(Nutmeg, Cinnamon, etc), Grilled prawns on sticks marinated in Coconut milk and Cumin/Annatto(bijol), Salt Cod Dip, Fried Bananas(brown sugar and Butter) flambed with rum. Lemonade with Ginger and Lime. Best Wishes.

Those chocolate coins covered in gold foil you see around christmas time would work for a prop/dessert- might be tough to find this early in the season, though. I've seen boats used as serving vessels (hehe) at some sushi places around me, if you've seen that it might be worth renting one or two from the restaurant at a modest price. Other than that- more details. Are your guests adults?- for instance

chocolate coins

chocolate coins
saw them in the holiday chocolate section of costco last week

also check any jewish store - they usually have them year round even though more popular at hanukah.

the original post was last year (2007)......but it'll be fun to think up shtuff.

Adult Party:
Cream Crackers, they are square and found in global markets
.....possibly "polly on a cracker".....boned rolled stuffed and poached, cornish hen, chicken,duck or more exotic....pheasant

Treasure Chest with gem colored pepper jelly tarts......

Oysters with Pearls

Chinese chicken drumettes with the meat pulled up and balled at the top of the joint.

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.....

Hehe

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.

how about some BBQ? I believe the alternate term for pirates is "buccaneers'. From what I hear, that term was derived from the Carribe Indian word 'buccan', which was a way to cook meat over an open fire on a grill.

This is interesting....

Ship's Biscuit or Hard Tack

Artist:
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.

ummmm the wriggling kind of protein......so drink the majority of the beer first and you won't notice the wrigglers. Is that writing on the biscuit?

What about fish or live chickens? When did citrus become an essential element to elimenating scurvy?
