(pictured), pork tenderloin in a citrus salad flecked with pomegranate
seeds or salmon and roasted vegetables in filo. To start, you could
serve chilled avocado, cucumber and lime soup in pretty tea cups, make a
glossy red onion tarte tartin to cut at the table or make a selection
of homemade dips for a more informal approach, such as white bean and
garlic served with salty tortilla chips.
And for dessert? We've
selected easy make ahead recipes such as marsala and mascarpone
syllabub, individual rhubarb and orange crumbles served in jam jars or a
show-stopping chocolate and honeycomb torte.
