This was my first attempt at serving a five course dinner party. To help my Mum celebrate her birthday, she invited seven of her closest friends over and I prepped, cooked and served a five course dinner party for eight. To this day, I still remember the menu, which is not surprising as most of the recipes were my own. They had:
Soup - Roast Pumpkin with Chives and Crispy Bacon
Salad - Prawn and Avocado w Mango Ranch Dressing
Pasta - Penne w Mushroom and Ham in a Tomato Cream Sauce
Main - Crispy Skin Salmon on Wilted Spinach w Creamy Mash and Steamed Vegetables
Dessert - White Chocolate Mousse filled Chocolate Cups w Raspberry Coulis
The dinner was a total success! I remember everything tasting really good and all the guests being very very impressed. Maybe it's time I revive some of these recipes...
