We’re firm believers that you don’t have to get blind drunk and make a fool out of yourself in a nightclub in order to have a good time. So if you thought that having a hen party was all about going to a bar then you’d be sorely mistaken! Hen parties can be customised and organised according to the bride-to-be’s preferences (but we didn’t need to tell you that did we?) So if the bride-to-be is a foodie then you’re in luck because not only is being a foodie trendy right now, there are so many fun foodie activities available at the moment too…
If you used to watch “Something for the Weekend” then you’ll know that there’s more to cocktails than just a Mojito. There are so many different types of cocktails and learning about them is just as fun as drinking them! So if you fancy learning how to shake and stir things up a la Tom Cruise in the movie “Cocktail”, then this is the activity to go for! You’ll learn how to “roll”, “dash”, “muddle” and “float” your way to cocktail making perfection. (No we didn’t make those up, its actual cocktail making lingo!)
If you don’t want to get completely silly drunk and you have a weakness for the sweet sticky elixir of sin that is chocolate – then this is the perfect hen do activity for you and your girls. You’ll learn all the tricks of the trade some professional chocolatiers. Naturally, you’ll get to sample the delicious confectionaries along the way as well as have a go at creating your own. So if making truffles has been a disaster and tempering chocolate has been tricky in the past, then prepare to (finally!) master the skill during this experience.
For those who want close tuition, there’s also the option to hire a professional chef to tutor you and your hen group for the afternoon. There are plenty of options, so you can sit back and watch the hard work being done for you whilst you sip some Prosecco or you could get involved and challenge yourself to an Italian master class! Either way, this is the perfect time to ask for some tips and/or ask for some advice about what knives to use and how to shop and cut food(s) to a professional standard. So as far as hen nights go, we can’t really think of a more sophisticated way than this!
