Dinner No 1 hosted by Tanyah
The inaugural dinner is on November 11th 2010
Well, it is my turn first, rather scary!!
So a bit about me, well the cooking part of me anyway…
I was a non-meat eater for about 20 years, I still ate fish but when you don’t eat meat I think you have to be a little bit creative. I rarely cook meat at home even though I will eat it elsewhere.
I pretty much love all food, love eating and adore being cooked for, although this is a pleasure I tend to have to pay for!
My only proper dislikes are lamb and parsnips (and YES I have tried them roasted!)
I am normally a get-ahead cook especially for dinner parties, where I am usually more interested in sampling the wine than getting sweaty in the kitchen!
For this dinner party I have made sure I am not cooking anything I have made before.
I have chosen my menu so here it is:
Classic champagne cocktails
Mini filo tartlets with bang bang chicken
Confit of trout with sauce mousseline
Guinea fowl with broad beans,gem lettuce and bacon
Mini sticky orange and almond cakes
Guinea fowl poaching in cling film
