Serve Smitten Kitchen red cabbage slaw instead of a salad:
Instead of serving traditional coleslaw or a traditional salad, it’s a great idea to serve red cabbage slaw, which is a perfect side for a wide variety of main courses. As an example, you can serve a refreshing, crunchy red cabbage slaw with roast chicken and roast vegetables or at a barbecue.
As a bonus, not only does red cabbage slaw taste delicious but it also looks far more appetizing that a traditional salad or coleslaw.
Consider offering a hearty soup:
If you’re thinking of hosting a dinner party, it’s a great idea to offer a hearty soup as an entree. Examples of soup flavors that you may be interested in serving up include a homemade chicken noodle soup, a butternut soup, a minestrone soup or a mint pea soup.
If some of your guests are vegetarian, it’s well worth opting for a meat-free option, so that all of your guests will be able to enjoy the delicious soup which you prepare for everyone.
Offer a few different spreads for your bread:
Every dinner party should offer bread as an entree, which will also perfectly accompany your homemade soup! As an example, you may want to opt for a sundried tomato based hummus or for a blue cheese spread. That your friends and family members are certain to finish.
When it comes to choosing bread for your dinner party, try to opt for at least two different types of bread. As an example, you may want to purchase a sourdough loaf and a traditional French baguette. If possible, try to purchase your bread from a bakery, instead of from your local grocery store. As nothing beats freshly baked artisan bread.
Add spices to your different courses:
If you want to wow your guests with your culinary skills, it’s a great idea to experiment with adding different spices to each of your courses. As an example, you may want to garnish basil on a tomato and capsicum soup and to use chili flakes to add a kick to your steak.
Don’t add nuts to your dishes:
Make sure to avoid placing nuts into your dishes as a large percentage of the population suffers from severe nut allergies and you don’t want to accidentally cause one of your good friends to have an episode caused by an avoidable nut allergy.
Try to offer two different types of meat as well as a vegetarian alternative:
As different individuals have preferences for different meat, it’s a great idea to serve a red meat option and a white meat option. As an example, you may want to offer salmon as well as venison. Just be sure to have at least one vegetarian option available such as stir fry tofu. Or a meat-free mushroom fettucini.
If you use the above tips to put together a mouth-watering delicious feast, your friends and family members will beg you to host another dinner party.
