3 Great Ways to Change Your Dinner Scenery

We have the perfect solution to staying home this winter, while still having a change of scenery! 

Here are three great alternative dinner ideas to enjoy in your home - without going anywhere!

An inside picnic!

Don’t let winter weather spoil a good time. How about an exotic Middle-Eastern-style picnic?  Push the furniture to one side, spread colourful blankets and cushions on the floor, and invite family and friends to a fantastic feast.  Serve a selection of appropriate finger-foods on big platters, and offer interesting drinks such as mint tea, pomegranate juice and coffee with cardamom.

Kitchen burger feast

An American-themed burger night around the kitchen counter is a great idea for a fun family night in. Make some juicy home-made chicken and beef burgers, then lay out a selection of tasty accompaniments – sesame buns, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and an assortment of sauces and relishes. Add hot oven chips or home-made potato wedges, and serve with milkshakes! Our recommended recipes:

Curries by candlelight

In many Eastern countries it’s custom to sit at a low table to enjoy a meal, and this is a great way to entertain if you don’t have a dining room table! Your guests will love this fabulous idea for an Indian-themed dinner. Place scatter cushions around a coffee table, put on some exotic music and turn off the lights. Fill the room with flowers, incense and scented candles. Bring out all your dishes at one time, so everyone can help themselves, and provide plenty of rice, atchars and cool fresh raitas.
