A Parisian-themed Quinceañera menu ‘pour vous’

Quince Madrina

Evoke Parisian chic during your Quinceañera party with appetizers, entrees, and of course, dessert, fit for the cafes along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Here are 10 items you can serve your guests inspired by the capital city of France. As Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.”

Transport your guests straight to the City of Lights with a Parisian-themed Quinceañera menu– without the cost of a jetsetter trip!

Hors d’oeuvre

Literally meaning “apart from the (main) work” in French, start off the night with light appetizers while your guests find their seats and mingle with acquaintances.

Baked Brie in Puff Pastry

The sweetness of French brie cheese can be complemented with apricots, raspberries or pears. Stuff a wheel of cheese on a rolled-out puff pastry and top with delicious fruit or the tasty berry of your choice. After wrapping the pastry around the cheese, bake in an oven for 20 to 25 minutes. You can serve the dish at the starting end of a buffet table or place the pastry on a pretty serving dish at each table.

Melon and ham brochette

Brochettes, small appetizers on a toothpick or small skewer, can be a dainty way to satisfy your guests’ appetite before the main course. A colorful combination can include prosciutto wrapped around melon, or dab a drop of honey and bleu cheese on top of some watermelon squares for a modern take on the melon brochette.

Light Entrees

Salad Nicoise

This ubiquitous Parisian salad consists of hard-boiled eggs, fresh tomatoes, tuna, anchovies, and Nicoise olives (the region from which the olives are derived from). Your guests will enjoy the fresh take on a garden salad.

French onion soup

A heartwarming classic, your guests can enjoy a cup of soup with a side of a toasted baguette. This soup is often topped with bubbling Gruyere or Parmesan cheese for a finishing touch. Let your guests know to leave room for dessert after this hearty course.

Main Course

Chicken Cordon Bleu

Make your guests say ‘wow’ before the Quince waltz starts and the lights dim with this storied dish. Chicken gets a kick with ham and a sharp white cheese such as Swiss or Gruyere.

Steak Béarnaise

For the meat lovers at your party, a steak Béarnaise is filet mignon with a succulent sauce made out of tarragon, shallots, and crushed black peppercorn. This fine steak dish is often paired with pommes frites (French fries) at bistros in Paris.

Dessert

Macarons

Satisfy the sweet tooth of both monsieurs and mademoiselles with one of the hottest dessert trends of the past few years – macaron cookies. These decadent cookies come in an array of colors to perfectly match your Quince party theme. Display the cookies on tea plates, or arrange them on cake tiers for a luxurious vibe.

Madeleine cookies

Serve these fluffy vanilla cookies with tea, coffee or hot chocolate to refresh your guests after they have spent energy on the dance floor. You can also insert these cookies into clear gift bags as a sweet party favor.

There are a variety of options to choose with deciding on your Quince menu, but the food of Paris will be enough to make your guests say ‘Magnifique” at your party!
