A PORTABLE PARTY
If you like the idea of combining the cohesiveness of a fully planned menu with the ease of a potluck dinner, we’ve got it sorted with totable dishes—from punch to dessert—that can be easily divided up among guests.
This completely totable menu is designed to be divvied up among guests, for a potluck with style.
Holiday entertaining can be exhausting, even for an experienced super-host. This year, share the work with friends and family. And before you think “uh-oh, another potluck!” have a look at this gorgeous spread. There’s something here for every skill level, and the only thing resembling a casserole is a decadent, licoricey fish pie. It all begins with a pretty, sparkling punch and a new way with apples (pickled!) to serve alongside good, sharp cheddar and crackers. There are two new salads too, making it easy to justify two deeply delicious desserts—one of them a Christmas classic, the other soon to be. At the centre of the table, there’s a new-school, old-school favourite: a buttery pork pie that borrows all of tourtière’s warm and familiar spice. With some luck, you’ll have as many hands helping with the dishes as there were bringing them.
