5 Show Stopping Ideas for Your Next Dinner Party

Dinner parties are all about friends and family coming together to share a delicious meal and even better conversation. Many bottles of wine get corked, kitchens get trashed, and your feet get killed – but it is all worth it when you see the amazement on your guest’s faces.


You see, dinner parties are about so much more than just good food. They are secret competitions between households, competing for the best food awards, with the most memorable house winning the respect of all the others for years to come.

If you’re hosting a dinner party soon and you can’t decide what to serve, below are five of the best ideas to get all the tongues wagging:

1. Beef Wellington

Beef Wellington is one of these most versatile dishes and can get served with anything from grilled broccoli to mushroom risotto. Make a classic beef Wellington by using a slab of premium fillet, chestnut mushrooms, and seasoned spinach.

Add a layer of phyllo pastry to provide a moisture barrier between the meat and the puff pastry to prevent it from getting soggy – and no one likes a soggy Wellington.

 2.  Rack of Lamb

If you’re looking for a beautiful way to impress your guests and it isn’t Meatless Monday, look no further than a roast rack of lamb. Be aware that this dish takes a bit of skill to prepare and cook perfectly, so don’t attempt this if you struggle to even boil an egg!

Lamb can be covered in herbs, tomatoes, feta, spices, and feta for an added burst of flavor. Lamb needs to be well-seasoned with salt and pepper and left aside to stand for an hour before cooking.

 3.  Kurobuta Pork

Kurobuta pork is a heritage breed prized for its luxurious marbling, making it infinitely more flavorful when compared to conventional pork. It requires no adjustments to your recipes, only tastebuds that are braced for culinary perfection.

Kurobuta pork is easy to prepare and makes for a most welcome addition to any dinner table. If you’re looking for a show-stopping centerpiece for a dinner party, and to knock the socks off of your guests – look no further than bourbon-glazed Kurobuta pork tenderloin.

4. Spinach & Ricotta Lasagne

Lasagne is the perfect party dish for a large crowd, especially when there is wine involved. It is comfort food at its best, but still presentable enough to serve up when you’re trying to impress your neighbors.

The best thing about lasagne is that you can assemble it during the morning, leaving you plenty of time to decorate and get ready before your guests arrive. Lasagne is always a crowd-pleaser, and this vegetarian option will ensure there are no awkward moments around dietary requirements.


5. Poke Bowls

Poke bowls are all the rage at the moment and for great reason! These vibrant bowls of seasoned raw fish, rice, legumes, and crunchy veggies pack one serious health punch!

They’re super easy to make, which makes them perfect for entertaining friends and family – giving you more time to spend with your guests. Poke bowls are typically served as a single-dish meal, making them flexible to make. Use whatever ingredients you like - the more colorful, the better.
