fast entertaining suggestings for 15 people

I'm a professor. I have to entertain 15 graduate students at an event at my home. tonight. I need fast suggestions for small things to eat, beyond the usual unwrapping of things from Whole Foods. I know how to cook but have very little prep time. some small, preferably warm things to eat?

OMG: fondue. did the concept just re-enter my brain? anything else?


PS: graduate students will eat anything but I'd like to make it a little nicer than their usual standards.

tabletop gas korean bbq

I did check the local groceries. They sold a butane (sorry, not propane) single burner with a cast iron grill to lay over it. The ones in France were much nicer: the replaceable can of fuel slips into the grill with gas controls on the front.

tabletop gas korean bbq

In France I encountered Korean BBQ restaurants that brought out a tabletop grill fired by a propane gas canister, on which we cooked our own food. I haven't been able to find one in the US. Any hints? These are integrated units that have a nice flat cast iron grilling surface with the replaceable propane canister generating high heat.
