TIPS FOR DINNER SUCCESS
* Simplify your menu
* Focus on variety, texture and colour.
* Always ask about allergies – it is so important these days.
* Do most of the preparation work ahead so you haven’t to stress about having the meal ready on time.
* Have a timesheet – seems extreme, but it works so well and will help you stick to the plan. * Don’t try new recipes on your guests. Keep to very comfortable ones that you know well and that work.
* Have all serving plates out of the press and ready in advance.
