Social dining can turn your meal into an adventure. It can also be something as simple as a new way to network. As a team, we’ve all met some great people at previous events and the social aspect continues to be one of our main reasons for hosting dinners and get-togethers.
You may have heard of our team dinner nights for a bigger crowd, but we actually started out organising small and more intimate events in our own homes. Of course, it was a bit intimidating at first, inviting someone new in, but we always ended up having a great evening. Unlike the bigger events, small scale dinners let’s you talk to all the guests and get to know them, so our social dinners quite often marked the beginning of new friendships.
Take our team member Egle as an example. This summer, she decided to share her homeland’s cuisine with other Copenhageners. Although almost all the guests shared her Lithuanian roots, she didn’t know them beforehand, so her excitement was mixed with a bit of nerves when she opened the door. However, she told the rest of the team that it didn’t take long before she was as relaxed as at any other dinner party – simply because everyone was there for the same reason, they all wanted to make it a great evening.
At the end of the day, social dining can be anything from small intimate dinners to large scale events, it’s all about finding the kind that suits you the best. Sharing the flavours of your home country, your favorite comfort food or going all out with creative new dishes. Regardless of how you do it, our advice is clear – do it! It is more rewarding than you can imagine.
