The complete New Year’s Eve menu

To drink…

Champagne of course – what else? Namely this vibrant Campari fizz cocktail mixed with cognac and served with a lemon thyme garnish.

For nibbles…

Get your tastebuds going with a gooey morsel of cheesy goodness. These warm cheese and onion cups take less than half an hour to make too – just try not to spoil your appetite! They really are rather good.

For starters…

Make this stunning entrée of scallops with lemon, basil and chilli brown butter  to really impress your guests. They don’t need to know utterly easy it is to make…

For main…

This succulent roast shoulder of lamb is roasted with cumin, coriander, wine and orange juice for a tender as you like main. Served with its delicious cranberry pilaf, it’s a knockout dinner party dish.

On the side…

Our tahini coleslaw makes for an impressive side dish and features radish, cabbage and cucumber in a tahini yogurt dressing. Sprinkled with sumac and herbs, this is a speedy salad if ever we saw one.

For dessert…

Simple mains and sides leave time to prepare a KNOCKOUT dessert, and you can’t go wrong with a chocolate and cream based number. Try this GIANT Ferrero Rocher éclair recipe with a moreish chocolate and hazelnut topping for a crowd-pleasing pud.
