‘Bruno likes helping me prepare simple salads at the weekend. We choose recipes that don’t involve much cooking, because no one likes waiting hours for lunch to be ready’

Team up with your guests
Let everyone get involved in setting up for lunch, from chopping ingredients to making sure there are enough chairs – the more people helping out, the sooner you can sit down to eat! ‘Our open-plan room means we’re not shut away in the kitchen while our guests sit and wait – we’re all spending time together as soon as they arrive to help prepare food and set the table,’ says Margo.
Keep it simple and share
Let your guests decide how much they want to eat, with large bowls of easy-to-share food. Margo makes big batches of a couple of different recipes so that everyone can help themselves at the table – and it’s easy to go back for seconds and thirds!
‘During the week, I make quick, easy meals – nothing that takes longer than 30 minutes – so taking our time over a meal at the weekend feels like a real treat’
