Episode 10: A Celebration Dinner Party

The Dinner Sisters celebrate their tenth episode with a Dinner Party episode. We’ll cook up a celebratory roast chicken and make some party quesadillas. Don’t forget dessert! We’re rounding out our dinner party with a flavorful, simple, and one-bowl cake that pairs excellently with a nice after dinner cup of coffee, the last glass of wine, or with your cup of tea in the morning. No judgement.

 

Farmhouse Party Quesadillas- My Name is Yeh

Quesadillas are a pretty standard quick weeknight meal. This recipe turns it into a dinner-party worthy meal with handmade tortillas and a bounty of toppings like pickled onions, avocado, radishes and more.

Tips:

  • Roll these out pretty thin. They will puff up on the griddle. Resting the dough for a little bit will help you roll them out easier.
  • Toppings make this fun. Thinly sliced radishes, pickled onions and avocado take this over the top and make them a little more adult. Put the toppings out and a “make your own” -style will keep grown ups and our pint sized friends happy.

Roast Chicken with Arugula and Bread Salad- The Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten)

Ina Garten hits it out of the park, again, with her lemony, herby chicken roasted over thick slices of country bread. Roast at a high heat - the chicken turns a beautiful brown and the bread turns into savory, crunchy croutons for your arugula salad. Serve on a big platter and impress whoever you have over for dinner. 

Tips:

  • Start the chicken ahead of time- this will make for a more flavorful bird.
  • Preparing, cooking, and resting will take about 2 hours. Plan this out and you’ll get a juicy and flavorful bird.

 

Towpath’s Olive Oil Cake- The Wednesday Chef

End your dinner party on a sweet note with this fragrant, delicious cake. Olive oil and citrus make this cake one to bake again and again.

Tips:

  • The cake will keep for a day or so- you can make this ahead very successfully.

  • Orange zest makes this cake. Pick a heavy feeling fruit for a better chance of a juicy orange.
