For my Suriyothai Dinner & a Movie, I don't think I'm going to need to buy any special cookware. However, I'm thinking of serving the meal buffet style. So I will prepare the Pad Thai noodles in my crock pot, I'm planning to cook the Peanut Satay skewers at the table with my little electric grill, I'll use my electric rice cooker for the Coconut Rice. The cold salad can be served on a platter, and if we make it to dessert, perhaps I will prepare the Banana Fritters in the kitchen at intermission. The only dish that remains to be planned is the Shrimp and Vegetable Stir-Fry. For that, I may even go shopping for an electric skillet/warmer, or perhaps a chafing dish. I figure, as long as I'm going to be cooking an elaborate Asian meal every month, I might as well invest in the requisite cooking and serving equipment.
