How to throw a dinner party if you can’t really cook. 5 tips.

Not being a good cook shouldn’t be a reason why you can’t throw a dinner party at home. We’ve discovered some ways to ensure there are good-enough food on the table without having years of experience in the kitchen. Here’s 5 tips to throw a dinner party without worry too much about what to serve.

1. Have a potluck party
Instead of placing all the burden to prepare dinner on yourself, plan a pot-luck party instead. Have your guest bring over some food. Tell your family and friends that it’s okay even if it’s store-bought.


2. Make simple, fool-proof recipes
Know yourself. If you’re rarely in the kitchen, a party is not the best time to test your cooking skills. Make fool-proof recipes such as our rainbow roast vegetables. More simple recipes here.JewelPie: Rainbow Roast Vegetable
