Probably don't "go" together or complement each other but I'd know I could make them with minimal effort and concentrate on the presentation

I'd do -

Roasted tomato, balsamic and fresh basil soup

Pork schnitzel with what I call Vienna potatoes and green salad

Apricot betty

Starter- Parmesan and herb soft rolls with asparagus cream soup and a Crispy goats cheese and asparagus croquette

Main- beef wellington with roast heritage baby carrots, Port and Stilton sauce and a watercress salad

Desert- treacle sponge and custard

Salt cod croquettes, fried calcots with romesco sauce

Slow braised pig cheeks (in wine, tomato's, herbs) with soft cheesy polenta

Starter: a spicy seafood soup
Main: ras-al-hangout and sweet pepper lamb meatballs with flat bread, cumin yoghurt and courgette
Pork done in apple then shredded and served in pitta with spring onion and cucumber

Dessert: rich chocolate avocado mousse, or a plum tart or a banoffee pie

Actually salivating! Haha. I don't eat meat or fish so there would be a veggie option on my main. Likely some form of wellington.

Different menus for each I think.

Masterchef I'm probably not equipped for and think I'd have the essential ingredients provided which would steer the decision.

Come Dine with me - hmm. I think I'd keep it really simple.

Fresh crab, prawns, avocado, fat cucumber slices separating layers, coriander garnish in towers with a lemony, marie rose type dressing, with a tiny hint of chilli.

Chicken breasts with sherry, shallots and dark mushroom with a simple dauphinoise, spinach and roast chantenay.

Chocolate pastry flan with lemon curd and mascarpone, secorated with raspberries and dark chocolate atrands.

Oh Peapod yours sounds great, if you can manage to keep the good bits of the main away from the meat, I'll come to your dinner!

I'd do:

Puff pastry boxes with shrimp in Alfredo sauce, or with wild mushrooms sauteed in brandy and butter.

Blood orange salmon, with garlic/rosemary roast potatoes and assorted roasted vegetables.

Almond, raspberry and dark chocolate cake, with a dollop of whipped cream.

Making myself hungry here.

Come on everyone. Feed us!!!

Ooh I hope this thread takes off!!! Food porn at its best 😁

Starter: Cheese baskets with roasted veg and salad garnish

Main: Posh roast dinner

Dessert: Hot black hole cheesecake with vanilla ice cream.

How about you OP?

If you were on Masterchef/Come Dine With Me/other cookery show of your choice and had to cook a three course meal, what would you cook?
