Bring dinner to a close in style with mouthwatering desserts to tempt your guests

Snacks served before dinner were well received, your starter has gone down a storm and the main course was a huge hit. Now, it’s time for the final course, dessert, which needs to bring the evening to a mouthwatering conclusion and end on a high note.

Whether you decide to serve up a sweet or savoury ending, a well thought out and homemade pudding is crucial to make sure your guests leave with their tastebuds still tingling.

Even if you aren’t confident about your cooking skills or ability to create a dessert, there are easy-to-make recipes that are straightforward to follow, but produce stunning results.

Remember, it doesn’t need to be a showstopper of a pudding or anything overly complicated to impress. A simple dish, beautifully presented and bursting with flavour will win over your fellow diners and allow you time to sit down and enjoy it with them.

To make things even easier, save time where you can by using ready-made pastry or pre-baked items.

Follow your plan and making your dessert should be a piece of cake.

This delicious recipe is light, refreshing and has a local flavour.

Happy cooking!
