Hosting a dinner party this weekend? Take heed of our advice and plan a relaxed menu with easy dinner party recipes. The most successful dinner parties are those where the host is as relaxed as the food. When we are entertaining and relaxing simultaneously we buy lots of antipasti for starters; a cured meat, a block of cheese and some semi sundried tomatoes will go down a treat. Serve with some herbed bread and a dip or two and people will be able to graze while you get the rest of dinner together. For dessert, make ahead – we love the ease of a cake; how about Neven Maguire’s lemon curd and raspberry cake? For more dinner party inspiration, click to our dinner party collection.
