This delicious and eye catching dessert is perfect when hosting a dinner party not least because it is super easy to make, looks and tastes amazing, but needs to be made a few hours ahead of time allowing you to be the perfect attentive host! The luxurious orange posset is teamed with a naturally vibrant rhubarb and orange jam, which not only provides aesthetic interest and combines a flavour combination which really works, but the sharpness of the rhubarb breaks up the richness of the dessert beautifully.
I love desserts. Puddings. Afters. Sweets. What ever you want to call them they have my name all over them. Just check out my recipe index if you need any more convincing! Whether they're homely like a Mincemeat & Apple Galette, traditional like a Yorkshire Curd Tart, or complex like a Marjolaine I just love desserts.
But for me, easy, eye catching, and delicious desserts are what's called for when we have dinner guests coming round. Even better if the recipe can be made way ahead of time to allow me to natter and entertain our friends and family rather than being stuck in a hot kitchen where it's easy to become stressed over how long things may be taking. Delicious make ahead desserts are certainly what's called for, and if you need some further dinner party dessert inspiration why not check out my 20 Awesome Dinner Party Desserts from top UK food bloggers!
