New Year's Eve recipes for entertaining, whether you're planning an intimate dinner party or a drinks party for a crowd
New Year’s Eve recipes for entertaining, whether you’re planning an intimate dinner party or a drinks party for a crowd.
Keep it simple this year with easy but impressive recipes that you can make ahead, so you won’t have to think about the food or drinks once your guests arrive.
Go for easy party food that you can throw together in advance, like rosemary bar nuts, cheese-stuffed dates and a savoury cheesecake that makes an excellent alternative to a cheeseboard, which guests can help themselves to.
For drinks, pick some easy all-in-one jug cocktails that make a chnage from fizz and ask guests to bring a bottle from the ingredients list so that you can keep those cocktails flowing all night.
Prefer to have a more intimate gathering? Make an extra special New Year’s Eve dinner party menu with an impressive centrepiece. Make a beef Wellington to show you’ve really made the effort, or go for a roast side of salmon, which is a simpe way to feed a crowd without compromising on the main event.
Whatever approach you choose, these easy recipes will help make it a New Year’s Eve to remember.
Make a gorgeous tear and share bread like this easy focaccia with sweet red onions and figs.
