Can of Fosters.
Pot Noodle.
Angel Delight (butterscotch).

£1000 in the bag.

I'll have to have a think, but definitely NOT bloomin' scallops. They must be the most overcooked food ever on CDWM.

MsOliphant · 30/09/2018 17:40

Lobster bisque

Beef wellington

Lemon syllabub

TomHardysNextWife · 30/09/2018 17:42

Hmm mine would be

Red pepper, harissa and lentil soup to start with warm soda bread

Roasted salmon, hollandaise sauce, dauphinoise potatoes and veg

Plum and cinnamon crumble with lashings of custard/clotted cream

Stormwhale · 30/09/2018 17:45

Garlic and chilli prawns with a salad garnish.
Sweet chilli grilled salmon with pad Thai and spicy brocolli.
Chocolate cake with cherry compote and chocolate ganache served with cream.

Oh good idea for a thread!

I actually did a couples ‘come dine with me’; not for tv, but just among friends. Ours was at Halloween, so we did;

Devils on horseback (canapés) with cocktails called devils brew (nicer than it sounds)

Pumpkin soup with gruyere

Steak & Guinness pie with colcannon (a nod to the traditional Irish all saints day meal)

Fallen chocolate soufflé with prunes & Armagnac with creme fraiche

Awwlookatmybabyspider · 30/09/2018 18:10

Waldorf Salad

Duck with orange
Duck with Cherries
Duck Surpise

ThisIsNotARealAvo · 30/09/2018 18:20

I don't know but I would definitely not try to make the plates look like restaurant plates because it always looks shit. I hate getting a meal served up on a plate unless I'm out.

Eliza9917 · 30/09/2018 18:21

Prawn cocktail in a glass

Steak & chips

Black forest gateux

Justtheoneplease · 30/09/2018 18:29

Following this as looking for inspiration for a dinner party next week.

sittingonacornflake · 30/09/2018 18:33

Ooooh some of this food sounds ace.

Mine changes but mood I'm in today:

Chicken liver pate, chutney, toast - all homemade.

Cajun salmon with lemon creme fraiche sweet potato chips and veg

Chocolate mousse cake with frangelico

Earlywalker · 30/09/2018 18:34

I’d do:

  • tempura prawn and squid with chipotle mayonnaise
  • meat paella with a Spanish side salad
  • pistachio soufflé
HolidayHelpPlease · 30/09/2018 20:38

Baked Camembert with toast

Tapas (paella, potatoes braved, pulled pork, chorizo etc)


Not even for the sake of the money, just because it’s tasty! My winning trick would be putting gin in champagne a la AbFab Grin

MsOliphant · 30/09/2018 23:45

I LOVE idea of pistachio soufflé!

Sparklesocks · 30/09/2018 23:50

I’m not sure (I think about this often!) but I know it would be something I’ve made plenty of times before and know it goes down well, always feel shocked when they’re cooking and say ‘this is my first time making this..’
