Lorraine's Fast, Fresh and Easy Food

Easy Entertaining

Series 1 - Episode 1 Easy Entertaining



Whatever MasterChef contestants think when they’re glued with molten caramel to the wrong end of a croquembouche mould, speed and ease are what most cooks need from a recipe. Lorraine Pascale delivers not only speedy and easy, but also smiley — and we’d all be as delighted as Lorraine if our lives were one lovely big round of limoncello jellies and burger-laden barbecues. Tonight’s opening show offers summery party food from mango, feta and avocado salad to Thai trout cooked in tinfoil.

And it wouldn’t be a Pascale show without a cake: here, it’s one she calls “crouching tiger, hidden zebra” cake. Expect stripes.


Lorraine Pascale demonstrates simple dishes completely from scratch, ideal for today's hectic world where, for many, packet and microwave meals have become the norm. She has solutions for all occasions, beginning with ideas for easy entertaining when friends or family turn up out of the blue and reveals how it is possible to spend less time in the kitchen and more time having fun with everyone else.
