Side Dish 16: The Dream Dinner Party with Skye McAlpine (mini episode)

Introducing our new mini episode…it’s a little after dinner something to keep you going through the week. It’s The Dream Dinner Party.

It’s short and sweet, just one simple question. Each week we will have a different guest guiding us through their Dream Dinner Party. They are allowed 4 guests, they can be dead or alive and of course we want to know why they will be invited. They’re going to be talking us through their dream dinner party menu, what will their dream guests be feasting on and what will they drink?

This week we have the queen of dinner parties and a woman who has the knack for making everything look so completely gorgeous – Skye Mcalpine.

We recorded this in Skye’s kitchen, which if you follow her on Instagram, you will know is just absolute heaven – a kitchen of dreams with a long flowing table, the prettiest plates and crockery piled high in a dresser and adorning the walls. She had cakes waiting for us, which were delicious, of course. Her third book came out earlier this year – A Table Full of Love – explores the connection between food and love and Skye’s love language is definitely food, which we explore in today’s episode.

There is no right or wrong way to host a dinner party, whether it’s a dream one or not. A casual takeaway with your very closest friends or a full-on affair where you impress people you’ve never met. The term dinner party can be a bit loaded, but in my mind, it encompasses every occasion and every way of doing it
