Season 2: Rachel's Favourite Food for Friends
Rachel Allen’s Favourite Food For Friends is about food for entertaining.
Entertaining at home should be great fun, not just for the guests, but also for the hosts. But it can be a challenge, too. It’s not just about cooking, it’s also about knowing what’s appropriate for the occasion. And it’s those special touches that make a party.
You want to have a romantic dinner for two? You need to impress your mother-in-law or your boss? It’s your turn to host the family Christmas dinner? You’ve asked friends around for a barbecue and it’s going to rain? You’ve been working all week but you’ve got people coming to dinner?
Relax and look no further because in this new series. Rachel provides the answers for the busy host who wants to give something special but which is easily prepared, using accessible ingredients in the minimum time.
