Hosting a holiday party is a great way to bring cheer to your family and friends, but it can also be a bit stressful making sure all the preparations are in order so the party will be a success. Here, Fairport NY’s most loved gourmet food store, Lombardi's Gourmet Imports & Specialties, offers three tips on how to be the perfect holiday party host:
- Cook What You Know: A holiday party is not the ideal time to try your hand at boeuf bourguignon for the first time. In addition to the stress of hosting multiple people at your house, you’ll also feel anxious about preparing an intricate recipe that you’ve never made before—what if it doesn’t come out quite right? Spare yourself this added worry and, instead, go with something you’ve made successfully in the past.
- Cook Smart: In addition to cooking what you know, choose a dish that is relatively low maintenance so you can mingle with your guests rather than spending the whole evening in the kitchen. Roasts and casseroles make great holiday party meals because you can do most of the preparation ahead of time. Then, just throw them in the oven while the party is underway. If you need to purchase additional cookware and gourmet food before the party, stop by Lombardi’s Gourmet Imports & Specialties
- Make Your Table Sparkle: Set a cheerful and festive vibe at your party by decorating your dining table with holiday-themed tableware. Lombardi’s Gourmet Imports & Specialties offers a beautiful and affordable selection of holiday china, pottery, and gift baskets.
