Any ideas? We are having four complete strangers for main course on Friday night and I cannot think of anything to give them.
DH will not settle for something simple like lasagne but I also have to think about catering to varying tastes.
Suggestions would be most welcome
anybody, I am desparate.
Excuse my ignorance - what is a progressive dinner?
Oh,rave from de grave!! Parents did this in the 70s!! (Different course at a different house ggg)
good Thai curry
Boeuf en daube
Roast chicken and tabbouleh
Chicken in soy with star anise
All dead dead easy.
Anything catch your eye?
Lamb shanks? Easy, nd make ahead and leave in oven but looks impressive
thank you triple g. I didn't know either
oh what a fabbo 70s idea...roll on the prawn cocktail and black forest gateaux!
and surely beouf bourginon for main???
No key swapping swapping though-!
Our Ds's school has organised this dinner for all the parents to get to know one another. Trust our luck to get the main course.
Will discuss these ideas with DH and let you know what we decide. He was thinking about rack of lamb - what do you all think?
what about fajitas ? if you cook the meat and the veggie bit separately and do some with not much seasoning you should be able to cater for all tastes -
A rack could be difficultif you are not in all night - get the timings wrong and you could end up with dry meat. Very slow roasted lamb with liquid would be alot easier - Nigella and Jamie both have recipes.
