Kirby: Can I trust you enough to eat your potluck?

< Previous Page

Overall, potluck dinners work best when you trust all of the contributors and none of them are trying to impress everyone else with their culinary skills.

Oh, and you’ll need to be careful about what you contribute. Nobody wants to be remembered as the person who forgot that Aunt Meevalou had a serious Brussels sprout allergy.

But if you’re obliged to contribute to a potluck gathering, there’s a safe bet: pizza. Not only will most people eat it (or at least know what it is), you can have it delivered. Then you don’t have to go.
