Bon App├ętite has a Summer Party Planner on their site. You answer two questions (number of guests and style of meal) and it gives you a list of menu ideas and themes. I selected "8 or more" guests and "elegant dinner" and got suggestions such as "Butterflied Leg-of-Lamb Dinner" and "An Elegant Occasion" which featured a roasted sea bass with tomato coulis. The recipes also include a timeline, making it easy to coordinate the whole meal. Seems handy if you want to throw a party but not have to stress about pulling the menu together. [via The BA Blog]
