Food and Drink
By Jon Zajac

As someone who loves food and drink, I find that incorporating themed icebreaker questions into events can be a great way to get guests talking, laughing, and connecting with one another. Food and drink-themed “This or That” questions are a fun and engaging way to explore people’s preferences, experiences, and opinions related to food and drink. Here are some tips on how to incorporate these types of icebreaker questions into your upcoming event:

How to incorporate Food and Drink themed This or That questions

  1. Choose a variety of questions that cover different aspects of food and drink, such as flavors, textures, cooking methods, dining experiences, and cultural traditions.
  2. Print out the questions on cards or display them on a screen or poster board. Encourage guests to form small groups of 3-5 people and take turns asking each other the questions.
  3. Allow enough time for each group to answer all the questions and engage in follow-up conversations. Make sure everyone has a chance to share their opinions and experiences.
  4. Consider offering food and drink samples related to the questions, such as different types of chocolates or cheeses, to enhance the sensory experience and create a more interactive atmosphere.
  5. Encourage guests to take pictures and share them on social media using a designated hashtag or account, such as #foodieicebreaker or @eventplanningpro.
  6. After everyone has had a chance to answer all the questions, gather your guests in a larger group and ask them to share their favorite or most surprising answers. Use this opportunity to highlight any commonalities or connections that emerged during the activity.
  7. Consider using some of the insights or stories that came up during the “This or That” icebreaker as a springboard for further conversations and activities throughout the day, such as a cooking class, a wine tasting, or a food tour.

Ideas on different themes of questions

  1. Flavors: Ask questions related to people’s taste preferences, such as sweet vs. savory, spicy vs. mild, or bitter vs. sour.
  2. Textures: Ask questions about the tactile qualities of food and drink, such as smooth vs. crunchy, soft vs. firm, or hot vs. cold.
  3. Cooking methods: Ask questions about how people like to cook and prepare their food, such as grilling vs. baking, frying vs. steaming, or using fresh vs. processed ingredients.
  4. Dining experiences: Ask questions about the ambiance, service, and company of different dining settings, such as fine dining vs. street food, solo vs. group meals, or indoor vs. outdoor seating.
  5. Cultural traditions: Ask questions that explore the diversity and richness of food and drink traditions from around the world, such as dim sum in China, tapas in Spain, or sushi in Japan.

By incorporating these different themes of Food and Drink-themed icebreaker questions into your event, you can create a fun, engaging, and memorable experience for your guests that goes beyond just eating and drinking. So why not give it a try and see how it can elevate your next event!
