Everyone has their go-to dinner party recipes, dishes that are almost guaranteed faultless execution. Unfortunately, the one downside of a tried and tested recipe is that soon you realise that the trying and testing has been enjoyed by the majority of your acquaintance. At this point one must search for new inspiration, and this fantastic collection of dinner party recipes from the UK's leading chefs will ensure that you're never stuck for ideas on what to cook when entertaining guests.
If you're looking for some fuss free dishes there are plenty of easy dinner party recipes to be found which won't keep you chained to the kitchen once your guests have arrived. Vivek Singh’s Scallop and tuna ceviche is a fantastic dinner party starter that is quick to prepare, while Paul A Young’s Chocolate tart with salt caramel can be prepared in advance and left chilling in the fridge until you're ready for dessert.
Hosting a dinner party can also be a fantastic opportunity to experiment, and try recipes that are a little bit more special. Anna Hansen’s Beetroot and liquorice cured salmon is a striking dish that is perfect for a dinner party - while the salmon takes more than a day to cure, the final preparations on the night are minimal. Colin McGurran’s Chicken with wild garlic and asparagus is a fantastic seasonal chicken recipe, while Dominic Chapman’s Stuffed courgette flowers look stunning and are filled with fresh flavours.
