A survey recently conducted by Red Tractor has revealed UK mothers’ preferences when it comes to preparing and hosting a dinner party.
The survey revealed that one in four mums would most like to have the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge over for dinner. Kate and Wills toppled over competitors Dame Judy Wench, Jess Ennis, Mo Farah, and even David Beckham.
Surprisingly, mummy porn sensation and author of Fifty Shades of Grey E.L. James will be invited to only one in twenty dinner parties according to the survey.
It also revealed that the demands of running a household makes more mums choose traditional, play-it-safe evening meals over meals inspired by TV celebrities. But it was revealed that out of the celebrities they would be most likely to seek tips and recipes from, Jamie Oliver topped the list, followed by Delia Smith, and Nigella Lawson.
And despite the growing number of cookery shows, cook books, and exotic restaurants, from those involved in the study more than half of households in the UK prefer a traditional roast dinner topped by apple crumble for pudding.
The study, which involved 2,080 British families, was commissioned by Red Tractor. Head marketing Richard Cattell said: “We’re aware that shoppers are faced with a variety of choices, both from the high-street supermarkets and also when eating out.”
Despite this, the survey showed that more people are still more likely to support traditional British food.
Red Tractor will launch its Red Tractor Week event on September 24. The event will showcase the Red Tractor’s logo, what it means, and how it can provide shoppers with access to affordable, high-quality food and drink.
