    You could go for ribs, sliders, curry, jerk chicken, rice.
    Not sure what else is authentic Caribbean but I'm sure there's lots of variety for a hot buffet.

    Is hot pot a traditional Brummie thing? You can make large quantities of that and should be relatively cheap.

    Remember a buffet is ANY food that is self-served - it doesn't have to be sandwiches and sausage rolls!

    When I married my ex it was Christmas and we had a buffet style wedding breakfast of hot lamb stew with rice or potatoes- Simple yet satisfying!

    I would definitely go with rice (you can do plain and peas and rice), potatoes, fried plaintain, jer k chicken, curried goat. I also like the previous posters ideas of ribs and sliders. You can do lots of different types of kebabs, chicken drumsticks/wings, fish fritters too.

    Birmingham has been a multicultural city for many years it doesn't really have it's own traditional food, so any english food or even that from our other ethnicities (indian, chinese, polish, italian etc) would serve :)

    The options are endless. Best of luck :)

    Mmmm fish fritters sounds yum. Sliders would be good. One of my friends had j3rk chicken in her evening buffet. Potato wedges are yum and fill people up. Maybe mini sausage and bacon rolls too. Pulled pork rolls are always a winner. A selection of warm salads like a roasted veg one.

    You could do lots of tropical fruit for dessert too. X
