In a couple of weeks time I have a dinner party planned for four women (including myself). We are all friends (we did our Master's degrees together) and do a dinner party at each other's houses every so many months. I'm looking for a really good wintry recipe, easy to make that isn't too fiddly (like I don't have time to source extra-exotic ingrediants). We all eat meat, so carni recipes are cool. I have a dessert planned, rice pudding with cognac soaked raisins and sultanas, or possibly tarte tatin...
Any ideas would be great.
