Alexander Gilmour and Alice Fishburn

From a garden party under the stars to dinner at the Savoy, we are offering you another chance to tell us what your fantasy dinner party would consist of and who would be invited.

The first FT readers’ fantasy dinner party took place at the start of the pandemic earlier this year. In a live Q&A readers shared dreams of lavish parties with authors, photographers and wealthy entrepreneurs. Others chose simpler guest lists with family members they missed. Clams, doughnuts and devilled eggs were prime ingredients of one reader’s fantasy; another opted for a simple shrimp salad alongside a cold beer.

Now you have the chance to dream again. Tell us in the comments below where your fantasy dinner party takes place and which five dishes are included. Who will cook them and who will pour the drinks? And which five guests — living, historical or fictional — are round the table?

The FT fantasy dinner party series appears in FT Magazine and online, and has included pieces by the FT’s John Gapper, who chose Joseph Bazalgette and Rosalind Franklin as dinner guests, and the FT’s Emma Jacobs, who invites Roger Sterling from TV drama Mad Men to a garden party.
