The best Smart TV apps for… a dinner party

Hosting a dinner party doesn’t have to be days of stress and burnt food. Relax at home and let LG Smart TV do the hard work.



Food n Fun

Rather than spending weeks trawling through cookery books for the perfect menu, explore hundreds of recipes on your TV. The app lists all the ingredients for a simple online shop. Handy step-by-step videos will show you how to prepare the food when it arrives.


I am a Sommelier

There’s more to wine than the colour, apparently. Fortunately, as with most things these days, there’s an app to transform you into an instant expert saving the embarrassment of serving Shiraz when only Sauvignon Blanc will do. It’s an easy way to impress guests.


Home Interior Idea

As soon as guests arrive they’ll criticise the mismatch of furniture. If you really want to impress a quick spruce up won’t go a miss. It doesn’t need to be as drastic as a complete redecoration, as Home Interior Design shows with hints and tips for a better home.



Playing an old compilation cassette from the nineties might not go down well. Instead, show that you’re down with technology, and music, and stream a perfect playlist from Napster. There’s pre-selected playlists if you prefer not to reveal your ‘diverse’ taste in music.


Wildlife darts

Eating over, you’ll want to play a game. Twister won’t be the best idea, Scrabble will bring out your immature side, Monopoly will turn the evening into a week-long event, real darts after a few tips from the Sommelier…? Try this virtual version – fun, competitive and just a bit silly.
