Arlington, VA

At this point in 2020, the novelty of catching up with friends, family and co-workers through video chat has definitely worn off. We’re tired of trying to spice up our “Zoomunions” with games, book clubs and karaoke. (We’ve tried it all at this point.)

But here’s a fun idea with the holidays fast-approaching: Craft a cocktail, cook a meal or decorate cookies virtually. Even better? Get the ingredients and tools you need delivered right to your door, and let a well-known chef hop on the video call and walk you all through the process step by step — live!

Nope. This isn’t just another meal kit situation. HUNGRY, an Arlington-based catering company that’s backed by celebrities like Jay-Z and Usher, is offering virtual DIY Xperiences, and they’re a creative way to spend virtual time with your friends, family and co-workers this holiday season. (Or they could make the perfect gift!)

Here’s how it works: Check out all of HUNGRY’s Virtual Xperiences. These include holiday cookie decorating and boozy hot cocoa (which includes making homemade whipped cream), homemade butternut squash ravioli making and cozy cocktail mixing. There are dozens of options.

Next, you’ll schedule your experience. When the day arrives, each participant (no matter where they live in the U.S.) gets all the fresh ingredients and tools they need delivered to their doorsteps.

Then, at your scheduled time, a celebrity chef or mixologist will lead your hour-long live virtual experience, walking you through the step-by-step process of decorating cookies with royal icing, mixing up some boozy hot cocoa or even brining a turkey.

And you’ll probably recognize a few of the chefs who’ve made appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Food Network.

Schedule your virtual Xperience today — so you don’t have to sit through another game of Zoom charades.
