Dining in is the new dining out: How to host a virtual dinner party

We may be living life in lockdown, but that doesn’t mean you can’t share a delicious meal with your favourite people. Stacey Jones, foodie and Founder of Kitchen Takeover, lets us in on her top tips for hosting a virtual dinner party that runs as smoothly as an aged Bordeaux.


2 Avos, 3 delicious courses

Kitchen Takeover’s award winning Head Chef Shane Yardley has created three delicious avocado-inspired courses for two people – a cocktail, a main course, and a ready-to-go dessert – using just two versatile, healthy and nutritious avocados.

Feel free to put your own spin on our ideas. You can substitute ingredients for whatever you have at home, or even design your own menu from scratch. It’s all about having fun – so crank up the WiFi, get a little creative, and make it your digital dining masterpiece!
