Deborah Meaden’s Dragon’s Dinner

Deborah is well known for her business acumen and her support of recipe sharing website and investment MyDish. What she isn’t well known for is her cooking, admitting to the MyDish team that she hadn’t cooked a dinner party for over 25 years!

Although Deborah may not be involved in much cooking, she has luckily been to more than her fair share of dinner parties. This being the case, MyDish decided to get the Dragon on board to help out with their dinner party menu.

Once on board, Deborah chose a menu which she built around the time of year and the ability to source the ingredients locally, as she is passionate about supporting local suppliers.

Deborah's Autumn British Menu-
Pumpkin Soup, followed by Beef Wellington with green beans, roast potatoes, and to finished off, her favourite British Pud: sticky toffee pudding.

Ingredients sourced and raring to go, Deborah struck gold.  Catching wind of Deborah’s challenge, top chef Giancarlo kindly invited her to his cookery school, La Cucina Caldesi, in Marylebone High St where he showed Deborah exactly how it is meant to be done.

The day was a great success and MyDish learnt quite a few things. Firstly, this particular menu tastes even better than it looks! Secondly Giancarlo of La Cucina Caldesi is a genius and a gentleman, and thirdly, Debroah can cook, it’s just that she’s normally too busy!
