Start your dinner party off in style with one of our fabulous starter recipes. Mozzarella and anchovy bruschetta are really easy to make but full of flavour or something smarter, scallops on pea puree with parmesan crumbs is a really impressive way to start your meal.

Once you've picked your starter, we've got plenty of mains for you to choose from. Whether you're looking for meat, fish or a vegetarian main, we've got something to suit you. For a special occasion, give our fillet steak with bubble and squeak cakes a go. It's an absolute delight of a main course - tender steak with and indulgent blue cheese butter!

If you're expecting a vegetarian or prefer to go meat-free at your dinner party, try our spinach and mushroom filo tart or vegetarian moussaka, both full of flavour and with ingredients that sing.

And let's not forget the dessert. If you want to serve your dessert in individual portions, then our chocolate melting moments with clotted cream are ideal, plus they're a failsafe option as everyone loves chocolate. For a real showstopper, then try our passion fruit and mango meringue roulade - it's stunningly delicate and tastes exquisite too.
