This is a very ” in ” cookbook. People living in urban areas and even small communities that are into community events will like this book. It’s about the modern potluck. I like the recipes enough, but most were not things I would make. Partly, because my potluck days are over. We did tons of potlucks when are kids were inWaldorf school and home school. Now, not so much. I think if you’re part of a church or some group, these recipes would be great.
