Colour themed resturant menu

A resturant where you order meals by colour

In order to simplify ordering at resturants, and to stretch a chefs skill, why not have a colour themed menu. For instance you could order a red starter, yellow main course and blue sweet. Its then down to the chef to combine local in-season fresh produce to produce a meal of the required colours. For the client, its exciting to discover what you're going to get ( or maybe a daily menu could give you a clue) and for the chef its more interesting as it takes more skill.

And for dunces like me it makes ordering at a resturant so much simpler. I actually do this at home sometimes for a laugh. My favourite is the bright orange main course, where I have baked beans, red leicester cheese, carrots and fish fingers.

Red for proteins; brown for starches; blue for dairy; green for vegetables... [waugsqueke, Oct 04 2004]

       Obviously a man of sophisticated tastes [bobble].   

       I kind of like this. I could match my meal to my clothing and then a the splats wouldn't show up. I also have great difficulty choosing from a large menu so I like that too. Leaving the choice to the waiter or chef is something I've done a few times and it's always turned out great. So +

       What color(s) would the wines have?

       What about the colour blind ? They could end up with a very strange combination of meals. Suggest meals by numbers as in a chinese restruant.

       Ordering drinks, most colours would result in either a cocktail or a fruit juice. Even if you ask for a specific shade of red, the head barman could still decide to give you a cranberry juice mixture etc.

       [mate] The colour blind would be no better or worse off than any one else - even the truly blind. Why would it affect them ? They can still ask for a puce main course (or whatever) can't they ? The idea is that the whole course is of one colour.

       My mother would hate this, since she believes that every plateful must contain a wide variety of colours to make it look nice, and will throw in random red pepper, carrot, radish, etc, if the food is insufficiently rainbow-like.   

       Green, orange, puce, or even white would be easy. How would you do black without burning everything? (Olives, liquorish, black-eyed beans not too tasty.) And what about blue? (blueberries and um blue curacao?)   

       Trying to have a drink for every colour is good fun though.

       I would like the infrared special as appetizer and then the ultraviolet main course.   

       What color is blue cheese?

       Sweet! Now I could have blue,red, yellow,and green eggs/ham.

       I often order drinks by colour if it feels like too much trouble to decide. "Ummm, get meeee, ummm, something...pink, please barman". They normally seem to quite like the challenge.

       I do that, too! I once got a very large purple thing with sparklers. Impressive- didn't taste to good though.
