Marie Curie is calling on foodie fans to hold their own dinner party in aid of the charity this November.
Retro food is having a revival and the charity’snew fundraising campaign; ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’ is all about hosting a dinner party whilst recreating your favourite nostalgic food. By inviting friends to make a donation in return for a dinner with a difference, you’ll be helping to provide care and support for people living with a terminal illness and their families.
Everyone from celebrity chefs to fun-loving foodies are revisiting and reinventing some of the classic cuisine of the last few decades. You can recreate time-honoured classics such as duck a l’orange and prawn cocktail, or even surprise your guests by putting a contemporary twist on some old favourites.
“Retro food seems to be everywhere at the moment and getting everyone together for a dinner party is always good fun - so combine the two, and host your own retro-inspired dinner party for Marie Curie," says actress Alison Steadmanis, who starred in the cult 70's play, 'Abigail’s Party', “Dinner Down Memory Lane’ is a fundraising campaign with a foodie spin and is the perfect excuse to be part of the retro food revival while raising money to help Marie Curie care for people living with a terminal illness. Revisit classic recipes or surprise your guests by putting a contemporary twist on some old favourites. There’s nothing like a bit of nostalgia to make you feel good!”
