If you like nothing more than having your friends or colleagues around for a dinner party, you might well like to take a look at some of the dishes mentioned in this post. The chances are, you’ll want to go all out to impress your guests, and so opting for something as boring and simple as steak and chips simply won’t cut the mustard. You need to spend a lot of time considering which are the best meals, and then take some time out to practice getting them right. As I’m sure you realise, cooking something for the very first time when you have numerous guests to feed probably isn’t a good idea.

I used to work in a Michelin star restaurant in Birmingham, so I know a thing or two about impressing diners. With that in mind, pay close attention to the meal ideas I’ve listed underneath this paragraph, and then take your favourite ones and search for the recipes online. I know you’ll find them straight away (hey, how do you think I taught myself to cook them in the first place?).

Pan Fried Bruschetta With Tomatoes, Cheese and Salad

As you can see from the totally gorgeous image I’ve included with this post, pan fried bruschetta is a truly luxurious dish that even the most hard-to-please guests are guaranteed to love. One of the best things about cooking this at your dinner party is that it doesn’t actually take that long, and so you won’t have to leave your guests to fend for themselves for hours like you would with some other dishes. I’ve cooked this a number of times for many different people and have never had a single bad response. So, you should definitely give it a go at some point this summer!

Homemade Cottage Pie With Carrots And Peas

While there are obviously many other minced beef recipes out there, homemade cottage pie is always a favourite, and your guests are certain to love it. Again, you’ll need to spend some time perfecting the flavour, as some people prefer stronger or weaker tastes than others, but you should be able to get it right by your second or third attempt. This will look like a very basic meal on the plate, but that doesn’t mean everyone at your dinner party won’t be complimenting you on a job well done. Everybody lives cottage pie!

Dexter Beef With Homemade Mash And Pickles

Don’t ask me what this breed of cow looks like, as I simply don’t know. However, Dexter beef is one of the most expensive breeds you can buy, and that is reflected in the taste. If you really want to go all out and knock your guest’s socks off, you should pre-order the meat from an American butcher. This isn’t as costly as you think, and the beef is usually delivered within one week. At the end of the day, if you’re going to pay £50 for a joint from your local butchers, why not pay £80 and get something ten times better?

Well guys, I’m getting off now, but thanks for taking the time to read this post. I do hope you’ve found my suggestions interesting, and in future you’ll attempt to provide all your dining partners with only the best food possible.

See you soon!
