What is ‘Girl Dinner’ on TikTok?

According to TikTok, Girl Dinner is an artfully arranged pile of snacks that when consumed in high enough volume, constitutes a meal. They often include a selection of snacks and charcuterie boards.

The food trend first became popular by TikToker Livie Maher, who said in her video: “A girl just came on here and said how in medieval times, peasants had to eat nothing but bread and cheese and how awful that was, and she was like ‘That’s my ideal meal.'”

She then showed her supper, which consisted of grapes, bread, a big slice of cheese, a block of butter, a bowl of olives, and a glass of red wine. Livie referred to this as a “girl’s dinner.” Her video quickly went viral with over 1.3 million views, and the trend has amassed 61.2 million views on the app so far.

Most girl dinners appear to include some kind of fruit, a block of cheddar, sliced salami, fancy crackers, and a dish of olives. TikTok users are loving the trend, as the meal is comprised of lots of little delicious snacks while requiring minimal cooking and prep demanded by an actual meal.
