Contributed by: News Canada
(NC) - Summer is finally here! It's entertaining season and everyone is looking for ways to make their party unique. Nir Adar, food stylist for Häagen-Dazs, offers 10 great tips to make you a party host like no other.
- Pick a theme.
Go global. Try something new and select foods and decorations to show off your jet-set party hosting style.
- Think of food as art.
Colourful ingredients, contrasting textures, and imaginative arrangements create a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
- Go online and save time.
- Create a signature drink.
Give the wine cellar a break and create a drink that is all your own! Don't be afraid to be creative with fine ingredients and top-notch spirits!
- Don't forget the designated driver.
Non-alcoholic doesn't have to mean non-interesting. Include easy, delicious drink options without alcohol as well.
- Keep it simple, easy... and elegant.
Take advantage of the season! Use fresh and pure ingredients.
- If you cut back on calories don't cut back on taste.
Häagen-Dazs 97% Fat-Free frozen yogourts, smoothies and sorbets are loaded with fruit pieces and purees - the uncompromising and indulgent taste without the guilt!
- Life is too short, start with dessert!
It's summer! Why not build your party around dessert instead of dinner? Just try ice cream as an hors d'oeuvre.
- Don't forget to invite the neighbours.
They won't complain about the noise if they're with you!
- Be prepared to be popular.
Once you've established yourself as a party guru, don't be surprised when people stop by all the time. Premium ice cream with fresh berries or a liqueur makes a quick elegant dessert for last-minute guests.
