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.

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.

Beef Wellington

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.

Peach Jelly Pannacotta Pots

This divine dessert is a twist on the classic combination of peaches and cream. The bright translucent fruit jelly looks gorgeous perched on the rich smooth pannacotta.

Zesty Pine Nut-Crusted Fish with Salsa Verde

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Pine nuts are such a versatile ingredient, they can add texture and depth to anything from couscous or salads to pestos and even tarts.

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.

Smoked Mackerel and Goat's Cheese Soufflé

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

Cheese soufflé is a classic and not nearly as scary a dinner party prospect as you might imagine. This version, with goat's cheese and smoked mackerel, is a fantastic variation on the theme.

Chicken Liver Pâté with Sweet Apple Relish

From: Rachel Allen's Dinner Parties

The combination of port, brandy and thyme gives this rich, smooth pâté bags of flavour - fabulous as a dinner party starter on toast, crusty bread or thin crackers and with a dollop of the sweet apple relish.

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!
