Home Living : March 15th 2011
4 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 15, 2011 It's party perfection HOMELIVING There is nothing quite like home entertaining -- from hosting a family gathering to throwing a child's party or sizzling sausages on the backyard barbie. But parties can be challenging. The key to a stress-free and successful party lies in good planning, says Sarah French, chef and owner of Sarah French Boutique Catering and Events. Ms French is partnering up with Howards Storage World to launch its Win a Chef campaign this month, and offers handy hints for creating functions to remember. She says anyone can be a great entertainer with a little planning. Take time to research the menu from your favourite cookbooks, and choose dishes which are simple to make, yet also look impressive. Recipes with seasonal fresh fruits add flavour and colour to meals. Fruit-lovers can keep produce bright and fresh in secure storage. ''Always make sure you have the freshest produce available and thoroughly wash all fruits and vegies,'' Ms French says. ''If you're cooking for big groups, it's a good idea to practise your dishes in advance. Prepare as much as you can ahead of time, or even the day before. This will allow you to enjoy more time with your guests.'' Think smart storage -- quality leak-proof containers keep ingredients fresh and can be served straight from your fridge. Creating the perfect meal Light dishes are a great party starter, such as fresh sushi, which can be prepared in advance. Have platters ready to serve as your guests arrive, so you can enjoy catching up with friends. ''I like to do a cold entree. It can be prepared ahead of time,'' Ms French says. ''Dessert is a must -- something simple and traditional wins hearts . . . apple crumble or a good chocolate fondant with vanilla ice-cream.''
