{Low Carb} Dinner Party – Main: Thai Curried Butternut

I love dinner parties! I love hosting them and I love attending them.

The care and effort that goes into planning the menu, setting the table and lovingly presenting the food… total satisfaction and pure enjoyment!

So – what’s on the menu?

Well, it’s important to make sure that your guests will eat everything on your menu, so do check whether there are any specific dietary restrictions, etc.

That said – it’s your party and you can make it low carb! Who needs bread when you have all these beautiful foods:

The Menu:

Anti Pasti platter {Starters}
{Chorizo, salami, blue cheese, Grana Padano cheese, sliced pears, Grana Padano crisps, homemade cottage cheese with toasted pumpkin seeds & pine nuts, roasted peppers, chicken liver pate, cranberry & Rooibos relish, toasted Pecan nuts}

Thai Curried Butternut {Main}
Grilled Zucchini Salad

Almond & Coconut Tart with Poached Pears & Coconut Cream

It’s quite an indulgent, rich menu, so small portions are in order.

I kept all the meats on the starter platter so that people could pick and choose what they wanted.
The main is vegetarian and quite small, because it’s very rich.
The dessert is also quite rich.
