I've been tapped to do an Irish lunch for ~75. Small professional kitchen onsite. Service is line up and get your plate of food. Menu is pretty traditional.
Soda Bread w/ rasons and caraway
I'm stuck on dessert. Usually this group gets grocery sheet cakes and/or ice cream, so I want to do something special and in theme. It's an alcohol forbidden function, so that effectively eliminates 99% of the Irish dessert genre. I've come across some puddings made from pinhead oats or barley, but I worry about acceptence.
I was thinking of doing either an orange roulade (a wink to the north) or a virgin trifle (even though its the traditional dessert of the hated English).
Any ideas? Ideally it can be made the day before and easy to serve.
