Never underestimate a first impression. It's why we'll never wear a vest to a first date again.

So while you might be putting all your dinner party efforts into making a crowd-pleasing main course and a squeal-inducing dessert, it's always wise to start off with a bang. To do this, we recommend going for a chicken liver parfait, an easily appreciated dish that'll impress your guests from the outset.

To get the perfect recipe, we spoke to the guys at cool new Covent Garden restaurant Heaton, Butler & Bayne (hbbrestaurant.co.uk) who shared their secrets.

For 1 normal size terrine

200ml milk

600g clean chicken livers

190g soft butter

100ml brandy

100ml madeira

100ml port

4 sprigs of thyme

1 clove of garlic

1 large banana shallots
