Entertaining on a Dollar - Gourmet Potluck

I am a huge fan of potlucks. Not only is a way to avoid having to cook an entire meal while entertaining, but it is also a great way to enjoy your friends' culinary expertise! Do you have a few friends who are great cooks? Do you want a way to partake of their delectables? Have an "iron chef" dinner party! A few of my friends and I have been doing this for the past few months. Here's the skinny:

  1. Select a few friends who like to cook and are good at it (you may want to limit it to the number of courses you want to eat).
  2. Every month, select an ingredient that can be included in each course (sometimes dessert doesn't count, but all main and side dishes should have the ingredient). So far my group has used shallots, prosciutto and orange.

  3. Assign someone to cook each dish and rotate each month.

  4. You can even rotate who hosts each dinner.

  5. ENJOY!

You would be so surprised how creative and excited people get about their dishes. This is not only a great money saving way to enjoy a divine meal but it also allows people to put all their focus on one dish instead of three or four!
