Whether you are having friends over for a casual dinner or you are throwing a formal dinner party, there is always a dilemma about what to feed to your guests. Well, worry no more. There is a whole host of options out there for those who want to have people over for dinner with minimum effort.
Making it yourself.
If you agree to have people over for a meal, then there is a lot to be said for doing the cooking yourself. Few things provide more satisfaction than poring over recipe books, deciding what to make than going to the market or supermarket and purchasing the ingredients. For some, this is a very satisfying experience and is the reason that you invite people into your home. However, for those who do not have the time, skill or inclination to cook but still want to have people round for a meal, there are several options available.
What type of food to buy in.
If you plan to use ‘bought-in’ food to cater for your guests, then there are many options open to you. Most of the supermarket chains and department stores have a great selection of food on offer, which as long as you can dispose of the packaging, you could pass off as your own creations. Alternatively, you could opt for ‘traditional’ takeaway foods such as pizza, Indian food or Chinese.
There is, however, the third option. Although still technically ‘takeaway food’, there are now many outlets, particularly in the capital, that mean you can have a whole host of food from different countries, delivered to your door. Whether you want sushi delivery London wide, Thai food, Mexican or Lebanese, there will be a restaurant for you that will deliver. This means that you can provide your guests with restaurant quality food but in the relaxed surroundings of your home.
An advantage of home delivery.
There are many advantages to letting someone else take the strain of catering when you have people over for dinner, whether you plan to use ready prepared food bought from a department store or supermarket, have caterers in, or settle for a takeaway.
However, where once, settling for a takeaway meant pizza, Indian or Chinese, what is clear is that there are now a number of other options, meaning that you can have a variety of foods delivered to your home. If you live in London and are used to the huge number of different restaurants and cuisines on offer, then it is good to know that some of these are now available in the comfort of your own home.
So, it is clear that there are many options open to those who want to do some cheating at dinner parties and it is a great choice for those living in the capital. Such options include having sushi delivery London wide, as well as having other gourmet food items delivered to your door, which you can then fool your guests into thinking you made yourself!
