8 Tips for fine dining at home

8 Tips for fine dining at home

15 April 2022 - Uqonic Chefs

How to create a fine dining experience at home? This is a question people ask us a lot. How do you re-create the experience from a MICHELIN Star restaurant or any other fine dining establishment in your own living room? Naturally, we asked our chefs to help you out.

Our MICHELIN Star Chefs know a thing or two about creating a nice ambiance to elevate your dinner experience. Three stars are awarded to restaurants that deserve a special journey to visit. Why? Usually, the chefs and their team created an extraordinary ambiance besides serving exceptional food.

Famous chefs like Andreas Caminada, Dominique Crenn and Mauro Colagreco all received this honour. We asked them about the secrets to mimic their ambiance at home and they did not disappoint.

8 Tips for fine dining at home with Uqonic Chefs

  • Organization is key. When you receive a Uqonic Chefs box and want to start cooking, first lay the ingredients out per dish.
  • Make sure you read the heating and plating instructions carefully before you begin.
  • Follow the instructions to the letter and do not wing it. Don’t mess with the temperatures and stick to the schedule. Use the recommended tools. Cut the bags correctly (do not bite or tear the bags).
  • Take your time. Enjoy the moment. Are you eating with someone else? Have fun heating and plating together. Do not rush the evening.
  • Make sure that the plate is warm when you serve a hot dish. Simply place your plates in the oven for a minute or so.
  • Set the table with extra care. Use a fresh tablecloth and your best Chinaware and cutlery. Make sure your glasses are clean and polished. Use nice napkins and put flowers or a centrepiece in the middle of the table.
  • Pick the best wines with your courses and look at our recommendations on the website if available.
  • Set the mood with lighted candles, dim the lights and put on a nice playlist.
