Dinner parties are a great way to share memorable moments with friends and family, and Marie Curie is calling people to host a dinner party with a difference this October.

The charity wants you to host a ‘Dinner Down Memory Lane’, and rather than encouraging guests to bring a bottle or a desert, ask for a donation instead.

To mark the launch of the campaign, top chef James Mackenzie said, “Be organised and plan your menu.

Don’t be too ambitious with dishes, people won’t criticise if it’s not up to three star Michelin standard!

Choose dishes that can be prepared fully, or in part, in advance so you don’t have to spend all evening in the kitchen – a classic prawn cocktail; venison casserole with juniper dumplings and creamy mashed potato; followed by treacle sponge with proper custard.”
