If you were bonkers enough to go on it!

Mine would be

Appetiser: Fried haloumi, sun dried tomato and aubergine wrapped together and champagne

Starter: Twice baked goat's cheese souffle with apple and walnut salad

Main: boeuf bourguignon, dauphinoise potatoes and green beans

Dessert: A trio of white chocolate cheesecake, chocolate brownie and raspberry sorbet

Of course I'm not sure I could cook any of this well and i don't have matching plates or glasses so I'd never win...

appetiser: homemade german style bread with pate, salami black forest ham etc.
starter: soup or broth with egg royale
main: a dish from the area I grew up with green beans, bacon and pears

bumper sounds great, apart from the goats cheese.

Mousy, anytime. grin

Though I might brick it and do a proper menu, in which case

Appetiser: Tapas-y bits like mini tortillas, anchovies, olives, empanada.

Starter: baked camembert with crusty bread and cranberry chutney

Main: Slow cooked morrocan spiced Lamb shanks with cous cous.

Pudding: Homemade icecream.

I'm not sure which menu to go for now. grin

I had to look up chicken royale & I am still not quite sure what it is grin

How'd you do blue ice cream?

egg royale = beaten egg + spices that have been cooked in a bain marie and then cut up into cubes.
