As much as we all love a good dinner party, there is something so innately stressful about being the one to cater for all of your friends and loved ones! How do you meet all of their dietary requirements? How do I socialise AND cook? What if I forget about the tarte tatin?! You are not alone if you have those thoughts and questions dashing across your mind, dinner parties can be stressful without any other extra help.
Although most of us don’t like to admit it, a dinner party is a chance to impress your guests and maybe have them feeling a little jealous that they can’t eat your food every day of the week. But if you aren’t naturally cooking-savvy, a dinner party can be a faff and an all-round stressful experience – but it doesn’t have to be!
Gone are the days of only the rich and famous having private chefs to cater for their perfection-expecting guests. It’s 2020, we are all far too busy to spend the time prepping and dicing and rolling out pastry for guests who will ultimately be enjoying the wine too much to notice if your pastry has a slightly soggy bottom (Mary Berry never needs to know…).
Fine dining at home with a private chef can be a fantastic experience. It can be personalised for whatever you are celebrating and have charm that a generic fine dining restaurant could only dream of creating. You can bring the delectable fine cuisine home, allowing you to focus on enjoying your time with your guests instead of slaving away in the kitchen. You don’t need to be Kanye West or live in a swanky country mansion to hire a private chef either, in fact they are increasingly common for the working families of Oxfordshire.
Private chefs can tailor a menu to your guests needs, and you can simply sit back and be provided with delicious food whilst socialising with your guests. You can afford to be choosey with your chef too; pick a chef with a history or passion of cooking a specific type of food that you enjoy. Why not venture out to Lebanese food? Or Peruvian fusion?
Here at dido’s, our passion is not only creating beautifully designed and cooked menus, but also providing a relaxed, non-stressful experience for you and your guests. Our menus are made to your tastes, and we can accommodate all dietary requirements. After a stressful year away from loved ones, it is time to make every second you spend with family and friends count, and a personal chef is a great investment to give you that time.
If you aren’t ready to invite a chef into your home, but still want a fine dining experience in your home, why not have a look at our dido’s @ home service, which brings culinary excellence straight to your kitchen! Check our website for more information and updates.
