OK folks, I need some help. We're planning a dinner party - my parents are coming for their first proper visit. They were here to help with the move a couple of months ago so they've seen the place in a mess, but this will be their first time seeing it now it's in order. They will be our guests for the first time.
The menu: I thought I'd make a little sushi to start (obviously), but after that we're a bit stuck. My girlfriend and I are both confident cooks, but it's a question of what to make. We're thinking maybe a warm duck salad with a port and orange dressing, and perhaps a fish course too. But what comes first, the duck salad or the fish? Or maybe that would be a disatrous combination.
We could just knock up a juicy roast, but that's what my parents have been feeding me all my life. It would be fun to try something different.
So I need to know - sushi, then duck salad followed by fish, or fish followed by duck salad? Or neither? There'll be something delicious for dessert, too. Not that I've worked out what yet...
