Ballet-themed dinner party
With the holidays just behind us, probably the last thing on your mind is eating some more. But for the new year, I thought I'd share with you the menu I devised for a dinner party I threw for some ballet-loving friends and fellow ballet students, complete with a few groaner puns. Recipe notes at the end.

After dinner: Pas d'action (I'm so full I can't move)
1) Grapefruit frappé: buy ruby red grapefruit juice. Freeze in ice-cube trays. Whirl frozen grapefruit juice in a food processor with a little Martini rosato (if not available, use red vermouth or some other fortified wine, or leave out for a non-alcoholic version).
2) For fondue recipe click here.Cut the buns in bite-sized pieces and dip them and vegetables into the cheese sauce.
3) Vegetable sauté: I stir-fried broccoli and cauliflower florets until still crunchy.
