Murder mystery dinner:

With a few simple accessories you can turn your home into a three-star restaurant. The decoration will surprise your guests and put them in the mood right away. The table setting is very important because you will spend most of the time at the table.

Make sure your table is large enough for the number of players. Count on approximately 60 cm per player. Is your table too small? Then extend your table by placing a long shelf on it or a flat door.

Cover your table with a white tablecloth or white table paper. If you don’t have that, you can also use a white sheet. Cover the edges of the table with a silver or gold ribbon. This immediately gives the whole a fancy look.

Cover the table with crockery: large lower plates with food plates and finally soup plates. The forks on the left and the knives and soup spoons on the right. Make sure you have nice napkins with the same color accents as the ribbon.

Finally, put a menu and a name tag for the guests at each plate (on the front side) to add a welcoming look.

Starter: “Are you chicken?”

Chicken noodle soup for 2 people. You can adjust the ingredients to the number of players.


  • 2 chicken fillets
  • 1 red chili pepper
  • 1 bag of shiitake
  • 1 bag of noodles
  • 1 bag of baby leaf spinach
  • 2 cubes of chicken broth
  • Soy sauce
  • Sesame oil


Heat 1 liter of water and put 2 cubes of chicken broth in it. When the cubes have dissolved, add the two chicken fillets. Let the chicken fillets boil in the broth for about 12-15 minutes. Remove the chicken fillets from the pan and let it cool down.

Remove the hard stalks from the shiitake and cut them into quarters. Chop the chili pepper. Cut the chicken fillets (cooled down) into small cubes of approximately 1 cm.

Add soy sauce and sesame oil to the broth. Add the noodles and cook them for 3-4 minutes. Then add the shiitake and cook for another 2 minutes. 

Finally, add the pieces of chicken and spinach. Cook the soup until the spinach has shrunk.

Main course: ”In a nutshell”

The main course consists of a pasta of zucchini and pistachio nuts. A simple dish that is sure to appeal to all ages.


  • Whole-wheat pasta
  • 2 to 3 zucchini (depending on the size)
  • Red pepper
  • A clove of garlic
  • Oregano
  • Salt pepper
  • Olive oil / coconut oil
  • Pistachio nuts
  • Parmesan cheese


Put the whole wheat pasta in a pan and bring it to the boil. Heat the olive oil/coconut oil in a wok and add the finely chopped garlic and red pepper. Fry the garlic and pepper briefly. Tip! Remove the seeds from the red pepper if you want it less spicy!

Cut the zucchini lengthwise in quarters and then into cubes, then put them in the wok with the garlic and pepper. Stir carefully, add salt/pepper to taste. Sprinkle the ingredients with 2 tablespoons of oregano. Mix everything well and simmer over low heat.

When the zucchini is soft, you can either blend it into a sauce with a hand blender or leave the cubes as they are.

Put the pasta on a plate, cover the pasta with the zucchini and sprinkle it all with pistachio nuts and grated Parmesan cheese.
