Baked Beetroot Risotto with Parmesan Crisps

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

With its amazing deep pink colour, this is a fun-looking dish with a seriously delicious taste. A risotto cooked in the traditional way can be a pain to prepare for a party. You have to be on hand to stir the stock constantly into the rice when you'd much rather be dazzling your guests with witty repartee. This baked recipe offers an easy alternative to all that stirring. For added convenience, the beetroot can be cooked up to two days in advance and the Parmesan crisps be kept for up to eight hours, if stored in an airtight box.

Chicken Liver Pâté with Sweet Apple Relish

Chocolate Crèmes Brûlées

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

My brother-in-law makes this divine chocolate variation of the classic crème brûlée. It is such a pleasing thing to eat, using your spoon to break the crisp sugar barrier to invade the creamy chocolate custard it protects.

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.
