To be considered a great dinner party host, you need to have a dish representing a classic cuisine when you want to impress. It’s the one you’ve served many times and can prepare with a relatively high chance of success.
Over the years, it’s been changed so that it agrees with your particular tastes, and it’s the dish that has made you a living legend. It’s one of the reasons people want to score an invitation to sit at your table.
My go-to classic is Coq au Vin (click on this link to find my recipe listed below the narrative). It’s classic French cuisine. Try it and change it to your liking.
