How to Create the Perfect Meal

When planning the perfect meal always be sure to have an appetizer, main dish, multiple side dishes and a dessert for the final plate. While you are in the process of choosing your dishes you will be serving, be sure that each and every dish will coinside well with the next. For instance if you are creating a main dish that has a spicy kick, you do not want to serve any appetizers or side dishes that are also spicy. It tends to be overwhelming for your guests. If you add in mellow foods for your side dishes, it will give their taste buds a chance to cool down after eating your spicy creation. Below are some examples of great foods and recipes to use for your five or even six course meal.
