Almond Meringue with Apricot Purée

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The apricot purée is also divine served with natural yoghurt as a quick snack or for breakfast. It can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container and will keep for up to a week.

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.

Beef Wellington

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

If I have time, I like to place the Beef Wellington parcels in the freezer for about 15 minutes prior to cooking so that the pastry is very cold before going into the oven.

Blackberry Mousse

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

This is a gorgeous autumnal dessert with a wonderful pink colour. It’s also a great excuse to go out foraging for blackberries!

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.

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.

Southeast Asian Grilled Fish

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

If you are cooking this dish for quite a few people, you can lay the fish on an oiled oven tray, drizzle a little oil over the top of each fish, and cook under a hot grill for 3–5 minutes on each side or until the skin is crispy and the fish opaque all the way through.

Thai Chicken Cakes with Sweet Chilli Jam

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The sweet chilli jam is a perfect accompaniment to the Thai flavours in the chicken cakes.

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.

Raspberry Millefeuille

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

This is a wonderfully light dessert of puff pastry layered with cream and raspberry. It looks very grand and impressive, so do serve it at the table as it looks best before it is sliced.
