Dinner Party Menus

dinner party menus

Here are some wonderful dinner party menus that I think you will refer to often.

I don’t know about you, but I use the same dinner party recipes over and over, and I get quite tired of them myself.

I am always on the hunt for new entertaining recipes. They don’t have to all be gourmet recipes, as my entertaining can be quite casual sometimes, but they do need to put great flavors on the plate.

I have put together several menus that cover everything from meat to fish and North American to European and Asian recipes.

These are more formal menu ideas, not the casual chicken wings and nachos kind of entertaining.

These recipes are perfect for when you want to have a true dinner party, with appetizers and dessert.

If you give them a try, be sure to use the form at the bottom of the page to let me (and others) know what you think.
