So, how does the structure of a perfect meal work? The following will help ensure that eating at home with guests runs smoothly from start to finish.
Appetizers or Hors d' Oeuvres
These are also known as starters, snacks, or finger food usually served before the main course of the meal. These appetizers will help you finish things up in the kitchen when guests start coming in, without boring them to death from waiting. One helpful tip is to prepare something that is simple and doesn’t take too much time to prepare. You can try some buffalo wings, deviled eggs, cold cuts, cheeses, and more.
Not everyone has a sweet tooth, but what’s a gourmet meal without dessert? Dessert is convenient to serve, since you can prepare it ahead of time. Some of the best desserts include classic chocolate cake, chocolate tart, carrot cakes, and more. Explore your options.
After enjoying sweet treats, a bitter coffee does a great job to complete the meal. This is called the digestif. Aside from coffee, you also have several choices when it comes to digestifs. Some examples include fortified wine, grappa, and whiskey.
