Weekend Dinner Party Menu
Feeding friends this weekend? Don’t stress—we’ve got the menu planning covered.
In the moment, a dinner party is everything we love: good friends, good food, the house looking presentable. But flashback to the day before, and we’re hastily combing our recipe database trying to compile a menu that’s somehow delicious, low maintenance and impressive all at once. Luckily for you, we’ve done the work for this weekend’s main event already and pulled together a list of dishes to make party planning just a little less stressful. Putting together the guest list, though—can’t help you with that one.
Save the wine for the dinner table—every good party starts with a good cocktail. Egg whites elevate this bourbon and honey drink to impress-your-guests level.
Bruschetta lives and dies by the quality of the tomatoes, so scope out your farmers’ market for the best options.
This fresh and crunchy salad from our friends at the Fairmont Banff Springs is the perfect foil to a hearty, homey main.
Cauliflower and bacon take this risotto from side to main dish. Creamy, rich and perfectly satisfying on a cool fall evening. Pair with a crisp white wine for maximum enjoyment.
These mini cakes look impressive, but come together fairly simply in individual ramekins and bake in just ten minutes. No icing required, just a scoop of ice cream.
