Crisps, cheese and curaçao: how to have a fantastic election night party19h Crisps, cheese and curaçao: how to have a fantastic election night party
General elections are inherently exciting because you get to stay up late, but the food and drink can take the fun to the next levelIt may be a bit early to bring this up, but on the other hand, it is only a week away: what are you going to eat on election night? On 1 May 1997, a journalist named Gavin Hills held an election party that became the stuff of fable. There was a firework for every Tory, let off when they lost their seat, and the sky was ablaze. I wasn’t there, as I didn’t know him, but people talked about it so fervently afterwards that it has entered my memory as the best election night I ever had – the one I wasn’t at. Hills died in a freak drowning accident the same month, tragically young at 31, and the magic of the election party died with him. Now, instead, we have snacks.
