Guest: Sounds great Tuaca! Uh, what's a 'potluck'?
Tuaca: It's a social gathering, usually festive, where people prepare dishes at their own home and bring them to a central location. This way, all the guests get to experience the culinary love from different kitchens, learn new recipes and ideas for their own home.
Guest: Um, OK. Sounds cool. What if cooking isn't my forte? I mean, I'm all about Deliveroo these days.
Tuaca: You're not obiged to cook, yet there maybe a talent up your sleeve? There are other elements that gel a communal meal. Bring firewood*, beverages, bottle water, or the choice preparation of another cook or baker, for instance. (*unless the fire pit is frozen over as it is today at -0 Celsius. Then don't bring firewood. Bring wool, lots and lots of wool. Or hemp or whatever you use to stay warm, like a sauna. Yes, bring a sauna! Or a hot tub.)
Guest: That's cool. Are there any dietary considerations?
Tuaca: Great question! Yes, the potluck is 100% biological and please no pork/pig products. It is grately apprecaited when you make a note card to indicate all the ingredients to put near your dish.
Guest: Any thing else?
Tuaca: Yes! Bring your musical instrument, a song, a poem, your authentic be at home, chillin' with new friends and familiar faces laid-back self. And maybe your house shoes or slippers?
