Potlucks and picnics, dinner parties and church socials,
fundraisers, toasts to the teacher, reunions, cookouts—it's
the busy age of shared meals, which means with every
invitation comes the question: " What can I bring?" Anne
Byrn, an inspired cook, problem solver, and bestselling

books with over 2.6 million copies in print, knows exactly
how to answer the question. Cutting through menu block—a
condition familiar to everyone who cooks—here are over 200
delicious suggestions for crowd-pleasing food that’s
designed to travel.
There are finger foods, canapes,
and "trios"—Trio of Marinated Goat Cheese, Asian Summer
Rolls with a Trio of Sauces, Trio of Pastry-Wrapped
Camemberts. 25 surprising salads: White Corn Salad with
Fresh Thyme, Asparagus and Grilled Peppers with Asian Soy
Dressing. Main dishes for a party, from Southern-Style
Pulled Pork to Creamy White Bean and Spinach Lasagne.

etiquette tips for working in someone else's kitchen, and a
