A senior Luxembourg government spokesperson has given a press conference to clarify the rules about how many guests residents are allowed to have in their homes, saying that under certain circumstances the number can exceed four.
“Technically, you may include a fifth person as long as that person is a government spokesperson and you serve some really fun and tasty snacks,” he said on Wednesday morning.
One example of such snacks are homemade blinis with smoked fish, ideally wild salmon which, he explained, is yummier than farmed salmon.
“You could also make some fun dips using aubergine, chickpeas, or roasted red peppers,” he said. “The sky’s the limit. Use your imagination. The emphasis is on fun and tasty.”
“Starter-sized portions of soup are also an option. But if you go with soup, it’s got to have the ‘wow’ factor, and it’s advisable to serve it in cute, party-sized bowls of unusual shapes, or the bowl could be made from freshly baked bread, yeah, that’s a great idea.”
“Cubes of hard cheese are also highly appreciated, particularly Comté, but a good aged Gouda will also do.”
The spokesperson says that it doesn’t really matter which evening of the week you include a government spokesperson in your plan, but that he’s generally free on Thursdays and Fridays and he’ll bring a bottle of crémant.
