As we wistfully scroll through photos of us dining out with friends over scrumptious meals on our smartphones, we realise that these happy moments are fast becoming distant memories. I don’t know about you, but as someone who loves choices and variety, the pure sight of aisles and aisles of beautifully plated dishes at the buffet makes me very happy.

Even with dine-in options becoming possible in Phase 3 (Heightened alert), it will probably be a long way till we can dig into self-help buffets again. Why not recreate these joys with a hotpot or BBQ right at home with your up to 5 unique household visitors in a day?

It is the perfect solution for the non-chefs amongst us, homemakers who have run out of meal ideas, and those of us who simply crave hotpots, grills and similar. These meals are as simple as making a grocery run, washing, cutting and plating them. Viola, a one-time preparation is all you need for two meals and more. Absolutely no cooking skills required!

If you are not already on the hotpot bandwagon, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of steamboat, smokeless grill and BBQ appliances and soup bases to relive those happy dining memories.
