How about Maylasian food. There is a lot variety , could be vegan or not, lots of small tasty bites and soups.

As a person whose go-to is more Asian-inspired than anything else, I'd say exotic would be Scandinavian/Northern European/Russian foods. Barring that, I was inspired by the coverage of Iranian foods in a recent Saveur issue--if you like "Middle Eastern" foods that might be a new place to go: http://www.saveur.com/gallery.... I liked flipping through this book, which is gorgeous (not too much for a vegetarian): http://www.seriouseats....

On another tack: Substitute "wild" for "exotic"--wild mushrooms, herbs, game/fish and wild foods could be really fun in the springtime if you can get them--the exotic outside your back door!

Have fun, sounds like a cool challenge!

You may want to check out Sasha's Global Table Adventure for inspiration. Be warned though - her blog is highly addictive! http://globaltableadventure...

Do you have access to game? Elk, venison, buffalo, bear? What about a "nose to tail" meal utilizing less popular cuts of pork or beef?

If you decide on an Asian meal - try something different like roasting a silky chicken with black skin. It looks amazing glazed. Like ebony.

These are super exotic. I'm making them for my next book group dinner: http://youtu.be/kl4iLOMhyeo...

What's exotic to my mother in law...not so much for me. Not sure she's ever recovered from the gravlax incident many years ago. Although, her 'Hawaiian Pork Chops' probably seem equally unfathomable to me...It's all relative.
