Foodie Hen Do Ideas
Categories: Hen Party Advice
Everybody loves fun hen nights or a good hen spa weekend but sometimes it just doesn’t cut it for some of us. After all, some of us would rather eat the cucumbers then have them on our eyes. Some of us are secret foodies that would love nothing more than enjoying a good plate of food and a glass of wine. However doing that for your hen hardly seems that exciting. So we’ve had a chat with some of the food loving hens in the office and asked them what their personal favourite "foodie" hen party activity is…
Chocolate Making — Pippa
I went on a chocolate making hen do once and every now and again I catch myself day dreaming about it and how much fun we had! You and the group get taught how to make chocolate truffles (to a professional standard!) which is a lot of fun, as you get to sample everything along the way! Surprisingly, we all enjoyed this more than we thought we would and although we went to a swanky nightclub later. We all later admitted that the chocolate making was the best part of the hen do!
Afternoon Tea at the Ritz — Cat
I do love a spot of afternoon tea and a slice of cake. Not exactly "foodie" I know but it’s such a British cliché (the tea and cake - not being a foodie) and nothing really beats a selection of sandwiches, cakes and tea served in fine china, whilst you have a giggle/gossip with the girls. So a hen party with afternoon tea at the Ritz sounds like just the kind of thing a foodie like myself would love. Last time I went we all made a real effort and went with a vintage hen party theme which not only got us extra special attention (and service!) it really added to the whole experience. Making the hen weekend really special.
Cocktail Making — Miriam
Nothing beats cocktail making. I’ve been a few times now and it’s great fun. Every. Single. Time. Honestly, nothing gets the girls closer together and giggling faster than a tasty bartender and an even tastier Cosmo! You learn quite a bit about how to mix drinks on this activity, how to dash, roll and float cocktails. Once you've learnt the basics you get to compete head-to-head against one of your friends in a (friendly!) competition to see who can shake and stir up the perfect cocktail!
Tapas in Barcelona — Abi
I’ve been a few times now and there’s nothing quite like sitting back, sipping some authentic sangria and enjoying some truly delicious tapas in Barcelona — from the country of origin. The seafood there is exquisite and the tapas meals there always seem to taste better than the U.K. equivalent. I’d suggest brushing up on some lingo before you go and know the different between tapas dishes. For example, Raciones dishes are slightly larger than tapas plates so if you see something that a few of you wanna dig into then I suggest asking for a raciones size!
