Dinner No 27 hosted by Harriet: June 2016
Having been asked by Tanyah to have a turn cooking at the 8ate group I thought about what I least like to dish up or the things I avoid if I have friends round for dinner. I dislike serving food on plates and have a tendency to put large dishes out on the table for people to help themselves. Perhaps a fear of things going cold or having to eat things you don’t want to out of politeness I’m not sure but that’s the plan for my dinner, let’s hope I don’t drop any plates on the way from the kitchen.
As it will be my dinner the night before the referendum I plan to celebrate the European Union with a menu of classic dishes from across Europe:
German sausage on rye bread, Italian bruschetta
A Greek carrot, squash, labneh and walnut gremolata salad
A cold rare British beef with a French dill and mustard sauce
French Crème brulee with raspberries
I’m always wary of serving a joint of beef as my family are very much in the well -done camp (except me). I’ve tried and failed with crème brulee before so we shall see if I can get it right this time!
