Poached Monkfish with Tomato, Sherry Vinegar and Toasted Hazelnut Salsa

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Poached monkfish is quite easy to cook when entertaining as it just needs a few minutes in boiling, salted water, and can be prepared in advance.

Crab Bisque

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

You can either buy cooked crab meat or to cook your own. Serve the soup as a starter or for lunch with crusty bread.

Spinach Soup with Rosemary Oil

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The aromatic flavour of rosemary, drizzled as an oil over this soup, works to perfection with spinach.

Scallops with Brussels Sprouts, Bacon and Orange

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

If you can, try to use scallops that haven't been frozen, otherwise they may leak too much water and end up poached rather than fried.

Roasted Vegetable Coconut Curry

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Making your own curry paste only takes a few minutes and the complex depth of flavour means it’s always worth doing.

Decadent Mushroom Tart

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Porcini are one of the most prized mushrooms. They are dried for preservation and when rehydrated in water they bestow their powerful, almost meaty flavour to the liquid. This tart uses that liquid and other mushrooms, as well as the porcini themselves, so it is crammed with mushroom flavour.

Rhubarb and Ginger Crumble Cake

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Rhubarb and ginger is one of my favourite flavour pairings. The gentle spiciness of the ginger perfectly marries with the sweet-sour nature of rhubarb.

Coffee Zabaglione with Tuiles Biscuits

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

If you love coffee, you will adore this intense dessert. I like to serve it in glasses with tuiles biscuits on the side. Any leftover tuiles can be stored in an airtight container, where they will keep for a couple of days.

Chilled Avocado Soup with Red and Yellow Pepper and Coriander Salsa

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The vivid colours of this soup make it a perfect dish for a dazzling dinner party.

Roast Loin of Lamb with a Spicy Rub

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The loin is the most tender cut of lamb with a meltingly soft texture.
