We have friends coming over for dinner that we haven't seen for 3 years. I would like go the whole hog and lay on some really fancy food, that both looks amazing as well as tastes great.
One person doesn't eat lamb, the other doesn't eat rare (or even pink) meat. They eat fish, but are nervous around anything on a plate with eyes.
I am looking for ideas for dishes (3 courses) that requre minimal last minute cooking and most of the work can be done in advance so I can play host. Ideally, things that can be presented well - so avoiding stews and casseroles unless you have fancy serving suggestions.
All suggestions gratefully accepted!
