The Big Send Off
"What is a Mystery Dinner?" I hear you ask. A mystery dinner pushes all boundaries beyond their limits - you may unexpectedly land up with dessert for your main course or you starter for dessert.
Each of our guests was sent an invitation, inviting them to a magical evening of mystery. The first moment of intrigue was introduced when they were asked to bring a mystery item of clothing.
On the evening each item was swapped amongst the group; guys were wearing fairy wings and Father Christmas g-strings and girls were wearing playboy bunny ears, bellboy hats and bow ties, to name a few.
The evening was starting to take on an intriguing quality.
No talking was allowed during this process. If anyone was caught trying to communicate with someone else, a jagermeister was forcibly consumed as punishment.
The actual menu consisted of a tomato, thyme and feta tart with a beetroot and rocket salad for starters or as described to our guests a "confused fruit that sleeps around" a "stained water sucker" for the beetroot and "A green lift off" for the rocket (the salad was split into two items, of course) and to accompany this course was a sex on the beach cocktail or "A sandy romp". A fork was also needed to eat with, which was called "the devil's prong".
The main was "a featherless bra filler" and "burnt at the stake" or to the uneducated, a chicken breast stuffed with brie, basil and pepperdew with a roasted veggie skewer. "Casanova Fizz" or rather a glass of Krone sparkling wine finished off the dish, with the utensils needed being a "silver poker" - knife and a "doos pelmet" - serviette.
Oh, did I mention that this was a porn star mystery dinner? No? Oh, sorry... well, have you spotted the sexual innuendo yet? ;-)
Dessert was vanilla ice cream balls topped with raspberry coulis and crumbled biscotti biscuits or "frosted Caster Semenya", "seductive scarlet swirl and "a crusty Italian". The drink was a jager bomb, aptly called "Hiroshima meets an avalanche" and the spoon "two bodies under the blankets".
