BRING THE PARTY

It’s the people at the party that make it what it is. In these unusual times, the guests play a bigger role than ever. Here’s what you need to do to make the night virtually perfect.

1. ACCEPT YOUR INVITE

Italians take dinner parties seriously. Being a good guest is a big part of the ceremony. So make sure you’ve accepted your invite in good time.

Want to be the host?

2. CHOOSE YOUR RECIPE AND GET YOUR INGREDIENTS

Top Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo has crafted these four recipes for you to enjoy: will you pick the same recipe as your host or go rogue?

FUSILLI WITH PEAS, PANCETTA AND MINT
VEGETABLE LASAGNE
SPAGHETTI WITH TURKEY MINCE RAGU
PASTA FRITTATA

3. GET READY FOR YOUR VIDEO OR VOICE CALL

Do a quick test of your host’s chosen platform – whether it’s Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Zoom or Houseparty.

4. GET INTO THE SPIRIT

Pick a playlist. Download one of our themed video chat backgrounds (these only work on Zoom). Slip into your finest Italian couture. Or just pop some prosecco.

5. GET COOKING

Give yourself plenty of time to prepare your meal. If you’ve chosen to cook FUSILLI WITH PEAS, PANCETTA AND MINT, then you can even cook-along with Gennaro Contaldo with our

6. DIAL IN TO YOUR HOST'S PARTY

Once you’ve finished cooking, join your host’s video or voice call ready to share your meal.

7. SALUTE!

Sit down. Prop up your device. Raise a glass. And enjoy your virtually perfect Italian night together.
