THE PERFECT MENU FOR DINNER PARTY SUCCESS
Dinner parties and home-based social gatherings have grown in popularity over the last few years, and now we’re as likely to dine at the homes of friends and family as we are at a restaurant. Dinner parties can be as informal or as formal as you like and if you want to, they can be a great excuse to show off your talent in the kitchen.
By using your sous vide machine you can almost guarantee perfectly cooked food, whether that be a main course with meat that melts in the mouth or a dessert containing fruits bursting with flavour. Whether you reveal your cooking secret to your guests is up to you. Either way, they’ll want you to host every time!
For alternative dinner party ideas take a look at our extensive collection of sous vide recipes.
CONFIT OF PHEASANT TERRINE WITH CHESTNUTS, POACHED FIGS AND HAZELNUT
Terrines make a great starter and this relatively easy sous vide recipe is no exception. As the terrine needs to be chilled overnight it’s the ideal choice for a dinner party as it means it can be prepared in advance, giving you more time on the day.
As with a lot of our recipes, they can be adapted to suit your tastes so if you’re not keen on figs why not substitue them for something you prefer?
DUCK CONFIT SOUS VIDE
Because most of the hard work is done in advance this super easy recipe will allow you to spend more time with your guests.
Cooked sous vide for 12 hours, the duck legs will come out succulent and cooked to perfection. Simply add your favourite vegetables and serve!
DARK CHOCOLATE FONDANT WITH CHESTNUT ICE CREAM AND SOUS VIDE SQUASH PUREE
We hope that you have left room for dessert because this stunning chocolate fondant is a huge crowd pleaser. Ok, it’s quite a challenging recipe but trust us, the result will be worth it!
If we could give you one tip, it would be to make extra because we guarantee that your guests will be asking to take some home.
