As someone who has the Food Network playing on the television constantly, it is fitting that eventually the i

Food Network
dea of having a Food Network Dinner Party came to light!  We started the dinner party tradition a while back, and what fun it is!  As a matter of fact, a Food Network dinner party gathering has become a Friday night ritual.  We have about fourteen people, a few of which are Food Network groupies like me.  Others just come along to the dinner party to enjoy the sumptuous food!  I get tickled at the fact that they always ask where we got the recipe. The answer is the same every time.  Food Network posts all their recipes online!  Sometimes there is even a video to go along. This dinner party is easy!

How to Have a Food Network Dinner Party

First of all, to have a Food Network dinner party, watch the Food Network or Cooking Channel.  When  an episode explodes with a menu that looks fantastic, use that material as the theme for the next get-together. We love to have the party on a Friday as friends and family relax and have time to spend.  Inevitably the conversation at the dinner party turns to the thought of the food we just had being better than any restaurant.  Know that the tradition before this was eating out every Friday.  That tradition has now moved to Saturday.  We do love food. The Food Network dinner party has strengthened that love.

Getting Ready for the Food Network Dinner Party

Food Network recipes tend to have little side accompaniments with them like sauces, and salsa.   I try to get and cook those items during the week in preparation for our dinner party.    If there is a theme for the meal such as an ethnic angle or type of food,  a few decorations add to the fun.  To call this Food Network dinner party a dinner party at all is a bit of a stretch as that sounds formal in tone.  This is just a visit-as-the-food-comes-together opportunity.  There is no stress in having everything ready when people arrive. Consider that  part of the fun of the Food Network is watching the cook do the cooking while visiting with the viewers.  Everyone joins in if there are tasks left to do at this dinner party.  A Recent Example of a Food Network Dinner Party

Last Friday night for our dinner party, we got together to celebrate the fantastic food of Jeff Mauro, the ne

Food Network Dinner Party
west Food Network Star.  An episode aired where he made batter-dipped cod slider sandwiches and fried sweet potatoes.  Oh my goodness, one could not believe the raves, and he is a new star on the network! The homemade tartar sauce, fabulous crunchy coleslaw, best batter-fried fish EVER, and perfectly seasoned fries made for a super meal for all.   Already next Friday’s menu emerges.  Jeff wins again with a chicken sandwich that aired today.   Jeff's show, ‘Sandwich King', has a title that says it all.   Sandwiches have never been the fare of Friday nights, but that has changed with Jeff's wonderful creations. In honor of his fish theme, we used fish-shaped plates, and some beach looking decorations just to add a bit to the fun.  The decorations are straightforward and fun.

Enjoying Your Own Food Network Dinner Party

Ask food enthusiasts in the family or friends group for help in looking for a favorite episode from which to spin your dinner party. To divide the tasks for the Food Network dinner party, make a few assignments.  We take into account that two items typically spotlight an episode.  We appoint a person to bring dessert and  salad  if those are not in the episode at hand.  Have fun!  This great tradition is one that I anxiously await evvery week. The benefits of having your own Food Network dinner party are many.  Experience tells us that fabulous food is a guarantee through merely choosing a favorite episode.  The price is considerably less than eating out.  Friendships strengthen through the make-a-meal together’ atmosphere. Several couples have small children.  They avoid  a stuffy restaurant and  can play and enjoy the evening right along with the adults.  Enjoy your own Food Network dinner party! Prepare copies of the recipes.   Requests for them is certainly to come! Comments welcomed on other dinner party ideas.
