Can I please pick your brains, lovely people? We're having people for dinner on Saturday and I'm clean out of starter ideas. We're having a rib of beef with a port and thyme jus for main. It doesn't help that one friend is a good professional chef and I have done some dreadful things,to him in the past...like do a blind bake for a tart and only take one of the two layers of greaseproof paper out before adding the filling! All bright ideas gratefully received!
