READY TO SERVE
If you’re planning to host a few friends for a meal, we have a few suggestions.
Prepare as much as possible before guests arrive so you don’t waste precious time in the kitchen.
Do a test run
This is not the time to try out a new recipe. Cook it at least once before the big day.
Check dietary requirements
You don’t want to find out when you sit down to a slow-cooked roast lamb that half your guests are vegans.
Take the plate
If someone offers to bring a plate, it might ease your workload — as long as it complements what you’re serving.
Let friends help
It’s a casual get together so, if they’re offering to help out, give your guests a job to do.
It’s a dinner party, not the pressure test on MasterChef.
