Main Dishes

The Star of Your Menu

Designing a menu isn’t an easy job! There’re several things you need to consider when shortlisting dishes before you land on the perfect combination. Undoubtedly, the most important item on your menu is the main dish you’ll be serving. It’s the star of your meal! Everything else on your menu is based around it.

But hey, serving the same meal over and over again can get a little boring, both for you and your dinner guests. You don’t need a complicated dish to up your game! With our easy-to-prepare main dish recipes, you’re in for a treat! Say goodbye to the same old Turkey roast, and say hello to Seared Sea Scallops, Tex-Mex Fajitas, and Shrimp Paella!
