My fav meal is somthing MIL cooked for me one christmas eve
Coq au Vin chicken with hasselback potatoes.
About as fancy as I get for starters is melon and parma ham Mil does this lovely salad with apples and wallnuts though
Pudding im not sure, im a jelly and icecream kinda girl how about molten lava volcano cakes
Some of the things I do when people come for dinner are:
-Goats cheese and aubergine towers.
-Home cured sea trout with horseradish cream.
-salmon tartare with rocket salad and lemon and black pepper dressing
-Chicken 'fillet steaks' with lemon and mushroom cream sauce
-best end fillet of lamb stuffed with black pudding served on parsnip puree
-Duck with fennel puree with a red wine jus
-Pears poached in port srved with brandy snap baskets, home made vanilla ice-cream and raspberries
-lemon tart with berry compote and creme fraiche.
-chocolate tart with home made vanilla icecream or cream.
-strawberry/raspberry souffle with starwberry/raspberry coulis.
All look really impressive, taste amazing and all are really easy and can be mostly prepared in advance. I usually do mini roast potatoes in olive oil or spring onion mash and reheat it and do the veg in my steamer, so it's easy to manage.
