How To Throw An Impressionable Dinner Party?

Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Whether it’s an official dinner party for your boss, or an informal one with your friends and family; if we’re hosting a party, we’d naturally want to do a good job. If you’re already proud of your culinary skills, it goes without saying that people will naturally expect you to impress them on your dinner party. But how do you do that? How do you throw a dinner party that will definitely impress and leave an impression? Read ahead to find how…

  • Pay very special attention to your grocery list – in the rush and the excitement of the party, it’s very easy to forget things; regardless to whether you’re a seasoned cook, or if you’ve made this same dish a hundred times already. Have a check list of all the ingredients, and try to do your grocery shopping well in advance.
  • A little goes a long way – apart from the food, there are a few small things that make an impressionable dinner party. Like laying out your best table cloths, or using cloth napkins instead of the disposable ones. Even dipping into your wine cellars and serving your guests the best you can offer, and lighting up a few candles to add to the ambiance makes a huge difference.
  • Be prepared for the unexpected – expect the unexpected. Always start your cooking early so you have plenty of time in spare, or if something goes wrong. Prepare a little extra, in the case of spillage or burning. Even extra cutleries and table settings can come in use sometimes.
  • Dessert can be special too – as you want to impress, it’s important that you do a little extra. Apart from cooking and serving the best meal you can cook, consider serving your guests dessert as well. Even a pretty platter of fresh fruits or steaming cups of specially blended coffee from your rocket espresso can be considered “dessert”.
  • Take your guests’ dietary restrictions into consideration – if it’s not an open house party and you know all your guests, then considering their dietary restrictions and preparing the meal accordingly can be very impressionable. But if there’s just too much to consider, or you don’t know how to handle it, go with what you know. After all, it is your party.
  • It’s not the time for experimenting – a dinner party is NEVER the time to experiment on. Even if you want to impress your guests, always only present the dishes you are well practiced and sure of. Experiments often lead in failure, especially when done under pressure; and that’s the last thing we’d want when we’re trying to throw an impressionable dinner party with personalized wine cellar

The Rise Of Veganism Around The World

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

For decades, the world’s most favorite food has been processed meat whether it was hot dogs or meat burgers. However, the meat industry and the dairy industry alike has invested billions upon billions in to hiding the truth about the meat industry from its consumers and therefore, for decades, these consumers have not been aware of the sheer cruelty that happens within the meat industry but with the rise of the internet and the popularity of the internet, this information has become public and with it, the world is seeing a rise in veganism. Veganism is by far the fastest growing lifestyle the world has ever seen with more and more young people committing to a life without animal flesh and animal bi products such as dairy. The great thing about this is that these young people have seen a massive improvement in their health as well in comparison with their processed meat eating counterparts.

Statistics and numbers

Every year, sixty five billion land animals are cruelly and unmercifully slaughtered to meet the demand for meat the world over and in addition to this, numbers of sea animals that can only be measured in tons are murdered for the meat eating population. In fact, it is said that if the world goes on in this way, the seas could be fishless as early as two thousand and twenty. This said however, the butcher Singapore have commented on a significant drop in the numbers and for the demand for meat products with plant based alternatives replacing the demand. Even supermarkets today have a separate area allocated for healthy vegan alternatives to the popular fast food the world is used to. There are even companies that are doing plant based, vegan meat delivery to restaurants who are now switching their entire line to plant based food because of the drop in demand for animal flesh and also because these restaurant owners are becoming more ethical themselves.In addition to the unethical aspect of meat, there is also the fact that the world around us in obese and sick. Almost everyone we know has some form of obesity related disease and many young people are dying of illnesses that were once known to occur only in the elderly population with age. Cholesterol is one of the biggest killers in the world and there are more young people dying of obesity related diseases than there are people dying of starvation.
