Of course, we all have our favorite pubs, clubs and cafes. But every now and then, a fuss-free party at home sounds perfect. You’re thinking nice food, nice drinks, with only your friends. No awkward conversations and no VAT taxes. Yes, please?

And then you start making that imaginary list in your head. Snacks, drinks, dessert, music, ice… Hmmm maybe too much hassle to host!

Sounds familiar?

We’ve all been there. So here’s a little outside help from one of the most adorable hosts of MasterChef Australia (which JUST kicked off its latest season), Gary Mehigan himself! His 5 tips on hosting made easy! #Lifehacks

Golden Rule!

Mix It Up

“When guests arrive serve them a little frothy soup in cappuccino cups while they chat to you in the kitchen.”

[Or serve dessert in champagne saucers, like Nigella Lawson!]

Fuss Free

“A clever cheat knows what to buy and what to make. You can buy a dessert and serve it with fresh cream and berries or add goat’s cheese toasts to jazz up a store bought soup.”
