For New Year’s Eve, I am taking inspiration from the small plates (tapas, mezze, and more) that appear on restaurant menus all over the world.  Small plates encourage experimentation in the kitchen and are perfect for sampling and sharing.  Remember how the New Year’s Eve television special shows you celebrations all around the globe?  As 2011 draws to a close, invite your friends over for a glass or two of kosher champagne and ask each friend to bring over 2-3 small dishes from a particular country.  You can have your own international extravaganza without leaving your living room.  Here are a few ideas to get you started, click on the cuisine of your choice for a menu:

Spanish Tapas

Mediteranean Mezze

Chinese Dim Sum

Mushroom Potstickers
