For some of our friends, it often seems a bit silly making a big dinner party because our friendship is so casual in its nature. Nevertheless, dinner is one of the nicest and most accessible meals to make into a party. We have prepared a list of 5 best casual dinner party menu ideas, that will fit perfectly for a casual get together. 

5 Best Casual Dinner Party Menu Ideas For You From Private Chefs

Because the outdoor season has just begun and we need to take advantage of the sun, long days and blue skies, we suggest that you organize all your parties outdoors. It does not mean that you have to have a big garden, although that is probably the most convenient option. If you lack a garden in your flat try to organize a picnic! It can be a park setting- now a lot of parks have special picnic tables, even barbecues that you can use. If you live close to the sea try to organize an evening on the beach. Any of the natural settings will be appreciated by your guests and will not only provide a relaxed atmosphere but also a lovely memory. 

5 Best Casual Dinner Party Menu Ideas

Healthy and Light

  • Caprese salad

  • Sautéed rolled chicken breast

  • Apple strudel

Our first casual dinner party menu is brought to you by our amazing Chef Hany. This menu is easy to make as well as nutritious and delicious. Start the evening with a classic Caprese salad. Make sure that the tomatoes that you have are ripe, very often the tomatoes from supermarkets are unripe and that makes them lack in taste. Go to a farmers market or spend a little extra on organic ones in the shop. It will pay off!

Wonderful evening

  • Bacon wrapped enoki mushrooms

  • Fettuccini with eggplant 

  • Tiramisu

This easy to make menu can be quick and prepared in advance. So if your casual dinner party is taking place during the week, this one is a great choice. If you have not tried the enoki mushrooms yet, you are missing out! They have an amazing texture and are to die for grilled with bacon.

A lovely summer dinner menu. It’s easy and casual. You can substitute wild mushrooms for any other risotto filler such as grilled peppers, pumpkin or meat. Semifreddo will be an amazing dessert at the end of the sunny day.

Cold weather comfort

  • Apple cider cupcake 

Our last casual dinner party menu is a menu perfect for a colder evening. This is a mouth-watering 3-course dinner that your guests will adore. Add a surprise ingredient to your classic squash soup. We all cook with wine, but perhaps it is a great experiment to try cooking with beer and cider! Open a cold beer and serve these delicious dishes to your guests. If you want to relax in the evening and put your legs up ask our Chef J to do the cooking for you.
