I have trawled the web for a recipe and I can't decide which one to go for so I want a T&T recipe please. I have friends coming over for dinner on Sat and this is the first time I've cooked for them so I want to impress!
Also our fridge freezer is broken and will only be fixed the day before (and it might not work till 24hr later) so I need a dessert that required no cooling or freezing. I'm laying on an antipasta-ish starter and ofcourse the chicken cicciatore with polenta and salad for main...if I had a working fridge freezer I'd go for ice cream/sorbet or granita...something sharp and refreshing. Any alternatives please?

Do you mean chicken cacciatore? If so, Delia has a good one. I'm pretty sure it's in her How to Cook series. That's the one I always use.

for pudding- pannacotta with good lemon curd on the side. Can do the day before.
Best recipe here- read down the article to the bottom. Its amazingly easy!

Thanks for the recipes!
Delia's chicken cacciatore does look like the business!
Unfortunately can't do pannacotta because the fridge might not be working.
I think I might go indulgent with the pudding and make chocolate brownies and serve with cream (ice cream if the freezer is fixed) and maybe berries.
