“To ensure that your party is a memorable one two factors are common to all good hostesses. Planning and confidence. Planning is mostly a matter of timing, always allow yourself sufficient time to purchase the necessary ingredients for each dish, time to prepare them and time to cook, prepare the tables and dress at least 15 minutes before you receive your guests.

  1. I'm surprised we don't see more lamb and pineapple combinations - it seems such a good summing up of 'Australia'!
