The dinner party

July 11, 2010 at 5:59 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

As mentioned in my previous post I held a dinner party to mark the completion of my kitchen and to thank Ali and Michael for their hospitality when the flat was a building site!

It was a gloriously sunny day, so we ate outside…. I also used the meal as an opportunity to try out some new recipes… so the menu was

Hummus (from the Vicar’s Wife’s cookbook) with crudities

Salmon with a pesto crust (Delia) served with new potatoes and some green veg

Chocolate and raspberry pavlova (Forever Summer – Nigella)

I won’t spoil the individual reviews of the recipes – but the menu worked really well, it was satisfying but not too heavy on a hot evening. It was also pretty low-stress as most of the effort (which was minimal) was done before people arrived!
