A Note From Teri Turner

A note from Teri - Dinner parties are what you make them. As a lifelong, passionate foodie, I adore magic. Magical dinner parties can mean anything from dragging your dining room table onto the lawn along with your best dishes and silver, or Tuesday taco night in the kitchen. An inspired dinner party can rekindle that unique and special magic of childhood, while being either elegant or homespun. Create alchemy: the devotion and intention in the cooking infuses friends and family with love on holidays and special occasions. Alchemy happens when guests are served with love. Transformational events leave guests with memories that last, and photos that inspire.

Gobi Musallam

Vegan Gobi Musallam - A Mughlai dish of whole roasted cauliflower served with rich and creamy makhani gravy When I think of lavish, one of a kind center piece for (vegetarian/vegan) dinner parties, the first dish that comes to my mind is Gobi Musallam. Some dishes are not found in many restaurants and this Gobi Musallam is one such dish where whole roasted cauliflower in a rich and creamy makhani gravy. This stunning dish is truly inspiring and impressive where a humble cauliflower is elevated to gourmet standard. This is one dish that always grabs attention from my guests whenever I cooked for them and it has never let me down when it comes to its flavour. It’s an impressive dish to look at and also in taste with delicately balanced combination of assorted whole spices which lends amazing flavour. I am mighty excited to share this recipe that is sure to win hearts of even pickiest eaters.

Puff Pastry Parcels

So you're hosting this year. Do you know what nibbles you'll be putting out? No need to freak out--keeping it simple and classic at the holidays is one of the best ways to please your guests and not drive yourself crazy in the kitchen. These puff pastry parcels are totally customizable, a cinch to make up and bake in minutes. I used a stronger cheese because I'm a fan of the smelly stuff, but feel free to use Brie or a fresh goats for a subtler flavor. Dollop a little cheese and add some chutney (I used a caramelized onion and balsamic from @holmstedfinefoods) or some prosciutto, olive tapenade, pear slices, or whatever floats your boat before pinching and twisting the corners shut. A quick egg wash, pop them in the oven and let them hang for about 12 minutes.
