Dinner No 9 hosted by Tanyah
Third round here we come….
This time I have decided to go for things I have wanted to try for a while and never quite got round to it.
Instead of canapes I am going to make a selection of dips as I often do dips at dinner parties
Selection of crudites with:
I am also making two middle eastern dishes which I have eaten and enjoyed but never made
Flatbread to go with:
Baba ganoush (aubergine dip)
Labneh (cheese dip made from yoghurt)
Bortsch soup, I love beetroot but have never cooked with it.
Smoked salmon souffles.
These are a twice baked souffle and the recipe says they can be frozen so I am testing them out for Xmas!!
Lemon Sole en Papillote, I have cooked fish in foil but not in paper and also not cooked with veg included as this Gordon Ramsay recipe does. I am unsure about serving what is effectively a paper bag on a dinner plate but it will be something a bit different.
Chocolate and chestnut truffle torte, I adore chestnuts but have only ever used them in savoury dishes even though they are renound for being good with chocolate, so here is my chance to try it out. I have read through the recipe and hopefully it will not be one of those ‘sinker’ tortes.
Almond and cherry florentines, something I love eating but have never made.
And if anyone can cope my lovely husband will be on hand to make Irish Coffee. I am already guessing the take up on this will be zero, especially with fresh mint tea as an alternative.
