Have you just invited friends, colleagues or relatives to dinner when you don’t know much about cooking? Don’t panic, there are simple dishes that will amaze your guests’ taste buds. To obtain a result that meets your needs, it is recommended to respect the quantity of ingredients mentioned in each recipe.
What do you want to prepare?
You don’t need to be a chef to make succulent and gastronomic dishes. Just follow the recipe to the letter. Before choosing the recipe itself, it is advisable to focus on the foods you will be using. Do you plan to use meat, vegetables, fish? Your choice should correspond to the expectations of your guests. So you can ask them which foods they like and which they don’t. For example, if most of them are allergic to seafood, you will not prepare crabs and shrimps. If this is the case, your dinner will not be a success. Also, if some people are Muslim, don’t forget to cook chicken or beef for them (they don’t eat pork). If you don’t want to ask their opinion and surprise them, it is recommended to cook several kinds of dishes. That way, they will have plenty to choose from.
