Hi everyone,
One of my foodblogger friends is instituting a cookbook cooking club - the idea is we get together once every other month to cook Saturday lunch together from a selected cookbook. I'm hoping I can get them to do one of my medieval ones at some point. :-) 
Anyway, to start off with we're having an afternoon tea next Saturday to go over everyone's books, and I need to bring a plate. So I'm looking for suggestions for a sure-fire hit dish that can be nibbled on while sitting around drinking tea and reading books, I.e. small, easily portable (it's a 2 hour trip on public transport for me to her place) and not too messy. I'm not the world's greatest at baking or pastry goods (and will admit usually use pre-made pastry) but am willing to give them a whirl. These are foodies so anything unusual is not going to scare them, in fact it will just make them even more enthusiastic!
Any suggestions gratefully received.
P.S.  TV clip update; the company is sending me a camera sometime this week and I'm doing a couple of clips - one on macrows, one on spices (probably long pepper as it's my favourite) and if I have time, one on a meat dish (sadly not fish Selene, as I'm allergic to cooked fish in one of those "think 'The Poltergeist" ways!) ;-) Thanks again for all the suggestions everyone, they were really helpful.
