How many times have your dinner parties at home ended with everyone having a wonderful time except you? Far from relaxing, you can sometimes feel like you actually never stop working the whole night. Or how often have you arranged a romantic night in to celebrate a special occasion only to find that you have spent more time beavering away in the kitchen than being with the one you love?
To pull off an effortless gourmet dinner party, you are going to need some help and we have a perfect selection of epicurean ready-prepared meals, sumptuous sides and starters, luxury cheeseboard favourites, decadent desserts and the finest British sparkling wine to help wow your guests.
Whether you are looking for an inspirational starter from our wide selection of gourmet dinner party food and drinks or for luxury complete menu deals covering an entire three-course meal for two or more – and a classy bottle of wine or speciality chocolates included free to boot – you can have your dinner party food delivered and save yourself the sweat. So now you can get out there and enjoy yourself!
To start, we suggest something simple but heavenly like our very own potted lobster served on toast with a salad garnish. Or, to really get the party started in a traditional way, how about buckwheat blinis topped with the finest smoked Scottish salmon, capers and crème fraîche. It would be unforgivable not to be offering something sparkling to help wash these down – may we suggest a bottle of Nyetimber Classic Cuvee? The complex flavours of honey, lemon and almonds have delighted wine connoisseurs all over the world.
For mains you may wish to choose to delight with delicately cooked new season grouse, accompanied by velvety mash flecked with black truffle. We can also deliver boneless quail with pistachio and foie gras stuffing, a gourmet fish pie or a truly impressive three bird roast, with layers of goose, chicken and pheasant lined with pork and orange stuffing.
Chocoholics will be melting in your hand should you serve up either the velvety smooth Chocolate & Salted Caramel Parfait or the divine Mazarin aux Noix Gateau to finish with. Turophiles – that’s cheese lovers to you and me – among your guests will be chomping at the bit to cut open our speciality cheese selection to round off their meal.
Of course, there is some work that a dinner party guest must face: choosing a dinner party gift to bring to the table. Traditionally, chocolates are favoured, and you can have artisanal chocolates from top UK chocolatiers delivered from our online store. However, those looking for more inspired gift ideas could do worse than order our dainty Petits Fours to really show their appreciation.
Tempting truffles, refreshing pâtes de fruits, creamy fudge, macaroons and many other mouth-watering morsels make the ideal accompaniment to an after dinner coffee.
And so to bed with hardly a hair ruffled. It’s alright: your secret is safe with us.
