Can I tempt you with a multi course dinner menu that won't stress you out? This is a really simple Italian-ish dinner party menu where so much can be made ahead of time to lower stress levels. There's whitebait with chilli; Veal Ragu and Pasta; Burrata, Tomato and Roasted Beetroot salad; Pea and Feta salad and Marmalade Pudding!
This Texan beef brisket BBQ combines a wonderful low and slow cooked beef brisket and all of the fantastic sides to go along with it too! Best of all it's an outdoor party!
Not all entertaining opportunities are lunch or dinner. There's that other delicious meal: afternoon tea! This is also a healthy afternoon tea (because life is all about balance).
If you like to think of yourself as a bit of a foodie let me put to you this idea of a "Forensic Eating" dinner party. Each person brings a dish and the other people have to guess what it is and what is in it! Test your food knowledge and that of your friends!
During the GFC a few years ago we decided to throw a dinner party that would challenge us and cost us $5 per head. It was a fun challenge because not only did we come up with a tasty three course meal, the clothing was also thrifted! It was a really fun challenge and had us searching for bargains and coming up with tasty but inexpensive dishes.
So tell me Dear Reader what is your favourite type of entertaining?
