Wondering if anyone out there can recommend a recipe/s to me. My wife and I have another couple coming over for dinner tonight and I'm cooking. We're all foodies and one of the couple is an accomplished chef so I feel I need to do something a little special. I was thinking some kind of slow cooked meat but I'd really like to get some nice/interesting flavours in there as well. I'd also like some kind of vegetable side that's also a little special. In Melbourne, Australia at the moment it's Spring but it's a pretty mild overcast day today so we could get away with anything. We'll be having plenty of good red wine (I'm thinking sharaz) so something like fish wouldn't really work. I guess I need a quick, easy, interesting desert too but the focus is on the main course and sides. I have the whole day to buy stuff and prepare so time isn't a factor. Happy to spend a bit of money as well since it's a special occasion. If you could recommend any recipes that would work in this situation I'd be grateful. I feel I've done all my dinner party recipes recently. Any other dinner party hints, tips and suggestions also welcome. Thanks in advance for your help!
