Come dine with me has been a show that never ceases to become boring and is most people’s go-to show to chill in front. Whether it is come dine with me couples, abroad or the original version there are a few tips we can take from the novice culinary show for future come dine appearances or dinner parties at home.
Don’t Be Too Confident
This is not a nice trait and can often make you look pretty silly, if you brag about how good your food tastes and it ends up going completely wrong then you end up looking a fool.
Don’t Be Too Critical On Other Peoples Meals
Respect the fact that they have tried and out yourself in their shoes. Being harsh and very critical can be really hurtful and might make them more harsh on your night.
Don’t Make Very Simple Meals
No, beans on toast is not an acceptable dinner party meal! Don’t choose a menu that is so simple it doesn’t seem at all exciting.
But Don’t Go Over Board
However, don’t get too carried away when making your menu as you might end up with far too much work to keep up with.
Cheating is wrong and a bad idea when it comes to being in a competition. You wouldn’t like it if another person cheated against you.
Bring New Ideas To The Table
Try to bring fresh new ideas to your dinner party, such as cook entertainment or interesting foods to really make the experience amazing.
Don’t Force Anyone To Eat Your Food
Don’t make anyone feel they are forced to eat your food, not everyone has the same likings and taste buds.
Teach People New Things
Teaching others in a fun way can really bring a bit of depth to a dinner party and show your passions.
Without Being A Know It All
However, try to do this without coming across like a total know it all and going on about whatever the subject is too much.
Don’t Cook Anything Too Spicey
Spice is very subjective to each individual so even if you like your food red hot, don’t assume everyone else will.
Pay Attention To Your Guests
Pay attention to your dinner party guests, be attentive and make sure they seem like they’re having a good time.
Plan Your Timing
Plan your timing and try and stay as organised as possible, you don’t want to keep your guests waiting for a long time in between courses.
Tie Your Hair Up!
Make sure you don’t get any hairs in your food! This is an absolute no no and can be really off putting for the diners.
Make Everyone Welcome
Make everyone feel welcome and included, as the host/hostess it is your job to keep everyone involved and make sure everyone is having a good time.
Have A Fun Night
Most importantly, try to enjoy your night and make sure everyone else is enjoying it just as much too.
