Hi,

I have 12 people for dinner on 5 Dec - pre Xmas get together. Have one no-spice eater, 2 non-pig eaters (nominally muslim but will have a glass of something and abide alcohol in food). 2 DCs, both in mid teens. Am planning:

Appetisers:
Buttermilk bacon pralines
Cheese straws
Olives and nuts

Main dishes:
Steak and mushroom pie
Fish pie
Chicken curry

To accompany:
Roast sweet potatoes
Peas
Cinnamon and clove pilau rice
Green beans (perhaps)

So what's for pud? Tastes range from traditional to adventurous but no culinary limitations, was planning on 2 - 3 choices, preferably ones which can be made a week or so in advance and frozen for heating up on the day. Am toying with apple and blackberry crumble, rocky road for the kids and having a bit of a blank about option 3. I do a nice chocolate boozy moouse?

Any suggestions gratefully received!

I think your choice of pudding sounds great, but if you chucked a trifle in there it would be perfection wink

How about something like a tarte au citron or fruit pavlova?
Would you be doing a cheese board too? I find they always go down well

Fab suggestions! Trifle isn't liked by a few folk, but I will nix the rocky road and add a lemon tart and some cheese. Thank you for your help smile
