I have a beautiful (and large) silver plated buffet set that I would like to get some use out of. Included in the set are three chafing dishes that I have no idea how to use. All three of the chafing dishes have two-quart oven-proof liners, and votive candles for the heat source.
I originally bought the set thinking I could use the chafing dishes at large parties to keep hot dishes hot--particularly hot veggie dishes or casseroles. However, after reading a bunch of articles about chafing dishes, it looks like I needed to get the sets in which you can place water between the flame and the glass lining dish.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can put these lovely dishes to use?
Anyone else have a vintage cookbook with those classic '50's cocktail party and buffet dinner recipes?
