The Best Dinner Party Ever! Doesn’t that sound great! Trying to have such a party often comes with a great deal of stress and exhaustion. I have a plan that can minimize these problems and still result in a terrific party. What does this plan involve? Have your guests do the cooking!
Could that really work? Over many years my husband and I have had this type of party times great success. Most of the work involves getting the recipes that will work together and I have done that for you on my website. Though, I have many more menus which we have tried over the years, I have only recently started taking pictures at these parties and currently five menus are on the site.
What do you need to try this?
1. First you need to choose some friends. I’ve found that lots of people will initially be intimated by the idea and say they don’t cook, but I’ve found everyone can chop and everyone gets goal of creating a good tasting dish.
2. Use the shopping list to purchase the necessary menu items.
3. Set up work stations in your kitchen.
4. Assign each guest their job and watch each guest get competitive and enjoy the resulting great food.
