A simple fork supper party is perfect for informal entertaining, whether it’s a celebration or a summer party with the family in the garden, or whether it’s entertaining a group of friends when you want something less formal than a dinner party – say after the theatre or a concert. Recipes in our casual summer supper collection can be mixed and matched to suit the occasion. Some dishes can be prepared in advance, while others can be prepared up to a certain point ready to pop in the oven or finished off at the last moment.
