The only thing better than making a very, very large amount of food to hunker down with yourself: making a very, very large amount of food to pack up and tote to a potluck. Friends! Feelings! The best kind of hodge-podge supper.
Which is why we were so excited to hear that Kristin Donnelly, the author of Modern Potluck, has launched a new community organizing tool called Potluck Nation—the delightfully simple goal being, in her words, "to create a movement and encourage people to use potlucks to bring communities together." Sign up for the newsletter, which just launched today, for gathering ideas (e.g. a potluck to fundraise for a good cause, or to foster conversation around a challenging topic) and information about real-life potlucks Kristin will be throwing this year.
To kick start the Potluck Nation movement, Kristen is going to give away three signed copies of Modern Potluck to the readers who throw the most inspiring potlucks during the month of March. Take a picture of yours and tag it #potlucknation on social media, to be entered.
And oh, you need some recipe ideas? These potluck-friendly (i.e. will-hold-up-for-the-car-ride-and-ensuing-day-in-the-sun) foods, and some supplies to cart them to-and-fro, will soar at your next event.
dippers to tote in a jar
A sealable vessel for the good stuff, plus a linen bag for bread, chips, and other dippers:
salads that can sit awhile
Large bowl and lid for washed lettuces and a wee dressing container, necessary:
hot, stewy things
...that will still taste delicious at room temperature.
Tote them right in the cocotte, with a little satchel assistance:
