07 Jul Planning a Summer Inspired Dinner Party Menu
With the weather warming up, now is the perfect time to dust off your best silverware and start planning a summer inspired feast for your family and friends. The summer months offer the ideal atmosphere for dinner parties, not only can you take your guests outdoors to enjoy the brilliant weather and great food, you can also inject a little sunshine into your overall menu.
Here at More More More, our gourmet meal delivery service operates all year round but the summer season is prime time to put your hosting skills to the test. With a little help from our professional chefs you can build a summer inspired menu that you and your guests will enjoy – without breaking a sweat in the kitchen. Take a look at our top tips for summer dinner party menu planning…
Keep it light and refreshing
Heavy dishes are a big no-no during the summer months, as whilst a calorific three course meal will provide all the comfort you need during those cool autumn/winter months, keeping it light and fresh is the order of the day for summer dinner parties. Our pea and mint soup offers plenty of wholesomeness, without weighing heavy on the stomach, whilst our chicken and king prawn skewers are great starters to complement barbeque season.
Make fish your meat of choice
When selecting a main meal that fits the light and refreshing theme of your dinner party, choosing fish as the main protein is a great start. We have a number of delicious and appetising fish mains to delight your guests and tantalise their taste buds, including seared tuna with Sicilian vinaigrette, chargrilled salmon with coriander and mint yoghurt, miso cod and salmon fishcakes.
Opt for seasonal sides
Including seasonal ingredients on your menu is always a sure fire hit, and as part of our gourmet meal delivery service we supply a wide range of sides that complement summer. Peas are at their best in June so why not try our classic peas and onions side? Beetroot is also seasonal in July, which makes our roasted beetroot and mustard dressing a fitting addition when livening up side salads.
Finish on a fruity note
Fruit based desserts are delicious all year round but particularly refreshing during the warm spring/summer months. We offer a selection of stunning, fruity desserts, choose from our poached pears in red wine, white chocolate and blueberry mousse, fresh berry lime infused creams, topped crumbles or orange and saffron sand cake, and indulge your senses.
