A hen party is a mouth-watering weekend for so many reasons, all those laughs with the girls, a fun hen party activity or two, nice meals out, plus the possibility of a cheeky cocktail or two.
But if the bride-de-to-be is a bit of a foodie, or you just fancy some tasty hen party fun that doesn’t involve running around a muddy field or being tortured by an over enthusiastic dance instructor (who simply isn’t taking anyone’s hangovers into consideration), GoHen.com stopped by to share 7 tasty hen party ideas that really will hit just the right spot with all the hens.
Chocolate & Wine Tasting
Britain has produced some amazing partnerships; Strawberries & cream, pomp & circumstance, Torville & Dean, Ant & Dec (?) but this latest one we’re most excited about. A chocolate and wine hen party will allow you to sample and learn how to perfectly match two of the greatest food stuffs. A night in with a movie will never be the same again!

Hen Party Master Chef
“Hen party cooking doesn’t get tougher than this…!” It’s time to beat out a “buttery biscuit base” or two as all the hens go toe-to-toe in this culinary challenge. Just like the show you get your own cooking station and then compete to see who can create the finest foodie masterpiece with help and cooking advice from a professional chef. “Ah mate, it’s summery, it’s fruity… I’d stick my face in it.”

It’s become a classic hen party activity and for good reason. Who doesn’t want to enjoy a few fruity cocktails, especially when you’re being shown how to make your own by a professional mixologist? And if that means sampling as you work (purely to balance the flavours of course) then who are we to disagree?

Forget plenty of ‘carry on giggles’ as things get a bit cheeky to say the least!
