1. Start by creating a strategic plan
This may come as a surprise, but the world’s best chefs extensively plan their dinner services according to on-hand ingredients and the guests they expect. The same questions apply to yours: When will you host it? Whom will you invite?
Another good one: Will your feast have a theme? “For example,” says Mullen, “I love live-fire cooking, and there’s nothing that gets people worked up like seeing big cuts of meat cooking over live flames. Something like a South American-style BBQ is a great epic feast to throw because you can have tango music, chimichurri, mojitos or capirinhas, or some quaffable Argentinean wine to bring out your inner gaucho.”Back to top
