With Christmas and New Year around the corner, I would like to share some ideas on how to host a successful dinner party at home for any festive occasion. As the host, you of course want to make sure that everyone enjoys the food and drinks, but more importantly, you also want to be able to enjoy the company and be part of it without having to spend the entire evening in the kitchen preparing food, serving food, and cleaning up. Here are five steps that I follow when preparing a dinner party for about 10-12 people.
After the holidays, we’ve adjusted our diet to eat less meat and fish. We were eating vegetarian dishes throughout the week, and fish or meat only about once per week. As a result of this, we already felt better a few days into this. At the time, I was reading “How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease” by Michael Greger, the founder of Nutritionfacts. Based on this book, I wanted to find out how our body reacts to a strict plant-based diet over a period of time, and I’m glad my husband was joining me on this experiment. I still couldn’t imagine giving up meat or fish completely, but I believe in the healing ability of food, and the right balance will help us to live a long and happy life.
Wow, it’s been 100 days now since our blog Narin’s World of Taste went officially online… It’s been an amazing time so far, writing recipes, taking pictures, and posting blog entries about my home-made healthy food. I wanted to take a moment and reflect, sharing my impressions, and define what my cooking stands for.
