Grilled and Marinated Rabbit

Here is a completely different type of main dish that will wow your guests at your next upscale dinner party. Grilled and Marinated Rabbit can be an exciting choice for your main course. Most of your guests probably never have tried it before. You either barbecue your rabbit to give it tremendous flavor, or you can also have a positive outcome by roasting the rabbit in the oven at 400 degrees F. When cooking in the oven make sure you turn the pieces of rabbit numerous times to even out how done it becomes on each side and the color of it. Metal or wooden skewers will be necessary to cook on the barbecue.

Rhubarb and Custard Kinda Souffle

No need to head to France for your next souffle. You can show off your skills with this recipe of a delicate and delicious nature. Although a souffle may seem slightly old-fashioned, it still remains a project for an experienced cook. Getting the temperature, speed and stages timed perfectly is essential to getting your souffle to rise properly. But even if yours does not hold up, even if it just falls flat, the amazing flavors in this dish, rhubarb and custard, will still please your guests and have them begging for more. This interactive dessert requires you asking your guests to make a hole in the top of their personal souffle and add the cold custard. This is the life.

Parmesan Chicken Breasts with Crispy Posh Ham

Adding some Italian flavor to your chicken will be bravissimo for a dinner party or special event. Part of that charm will be the preparation, where pounding on your chicken to flatten it out ahead of time allows this dish to cook quicker along with tenderizing it. Pairing the ham with the chicken breasts is a classic Italian style of cooking. The juices from the ham will easily seep in while they are cooking atop the chicken breasts. The lemon and thyme will also help to enhance those flavors. Think of Florence and Rome as you dig into this succulent dish.
