James, that's a tough assignment, and not because you chose live fire cooking. That's just a lot of items that will have to work together in a menu situation, and also woo the instructor.
I never thought I would ever be caught saying this, but maybe you could gain some inspiration from someone like Bo.....Bob....Bob......Bobb....Bobby Fla... Okay, okay..... Bobby Flay. There I said it.
This suggestion is not because of his prowess with a grill, or his knowledge of BBQ. No,...... it's more along the lines that he is a chef, he does use interesting ingredients, imagination and he understands balance of flavors. Looking through some of his grilling recipes may spark some ideas.
