5 Easy Ways To Put Together A Reunion Dinner Soul Living

From ordering the Reunion Takeaway Tiffin Set from Red House Seafood to doing a food swap with your neighbour, these tips promise to take the stress out of your reunion dinner preparations this Lunar New Year.

Does your place resemble a madhouse right before reunion dinner? You’re not alone. On Chinese New Year’s Eve, the day often starts out in all sorts of panicked rush in the kitchen, which kind of puts a damper on what’s supposed to be a heartwarming family affair. Stress not; here are five ways to ease your load.

Consider Potluck

If your reunion dinner involves a large gathering of relatives at one place, don’t let the host do all the cooking! Suggest a potluck dinner where each household contributes one dish. Of course, a bit of planning is necessary – start a Whatsapp group and ask everyone to share the dish they are preparing so as to avoid any repeats.

Do A Food Swap With Your Neighbour

Don’t know how your next-door neighbour looks like? Well, this particular tip probably isn’t for you, but it sure is high time you get to know your neighbours better because what you’re about to read will come in handy for your next reunion dinner! Basically, buddy up with a neighbour (or two) and do a food swap – prepare more of one dish so you can swap some of it with your neighbour for something she’s prepared.

Stick To The Good Ol’ Steamboat

Steamboats are easy to prepare and ideal for communal dining, but they are also one of the more troublesome meals to clean up after you’re done. Here’s a tip: Typically, there will be plenty of leftover ingredients, so serve the ingredients in takeaway containers to facilitate the packing later. Plus, this frees up more space on the table (as compared to when you place the ingredients on plates) for an even wider variety of ingredients!

Use A Disposable Plastic Tablecloth

Available at most provision shops, disposable plastic tablecloths help cut your cleaning time – which you’ll especially appreciate if your reunion dinner involves feeding a large crowd! But don’t forget to do your part for the environment; do a simple wipe down post-dinner, then recycle the disposable plastic tablecloth at a nearby recycling bin.

Opt For Takeaways

Saving the best for last, the easiest way to put together a reunion dinner is to order takeaway. Not only does it save you the hassle of preparing the dinner, it also promises a great-tasting meal! Of course, the latter depends on where you’re ordering the dinner from. For takeaway meals that never disappoint, look no further than Red House Seafood. This year, the restaurant is introducing the Reunion Takeaway Tiffin Set, a three-tiered custom-made tingkat featuring three specially created festive dishes for the Lunar New Year, as well as Prosperity Raw Salmon Yu Sheng, Steamed Fried Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaf, and mandarin oranges – all these, at a delicious price of just $188 for 6 persons! The three new dishes in the tingkat are: Sauteed Fresh Lily Bulbs, Wild Mushrooms with Asparagus (these vegetables were specially chosen for their ability to stay crunchy during transport); Sauteed Trio of Seafood with Pineapple in Chef’s Spicy Sauce; and Braised Pork Belly with Special Sauce (the tender meat is first deep-fried, then slow-cooked for three hours!).

To order, call the Prinsep Street outlet at 6336 6080 or The Quayside at 6735 7666, visit http://redhouseseafood.com/shop/, or email Red House Seafood at prinsep@redhouseseafood.com / quayside@redhouseseafood.com. The Reunion Takeaway Tiffin Set is available from January 25 to February 22, 2016.

 

About Red House Seafood:
