potluck ideas?

hautecocoa Dec 6, 2006 01:02 AM

it'd impossible for me to make anything, so would anybody know where i could get something good for a potluck office lunch? i was thinking more of hors d' oeuvres (somebody's bringing a meat/rice casserole and a whole slew of people are bringing desserts), but i'd welcome all suggestions.

    Do you have an area in which you'd prefer to shop for the pot luck?

        I would go to goldstone on Spadina just south of Dundas to pick up 2 or 3 lbs of sliced BBQ pork and perhaps some Roasted Pork too. Then big up some crusty breads. Hot mustard would be a great addition.

      Honestly, some of the President's Choice appetisers are amazing. Chatelaine magazine did a piece about this, even Sobeys got a mention for spring rolls. Presidents Choice (Loblaws) for samosas, even M&M got mentioned for tomato and provolone party spirals.

        Frankly, good bread is what comes to mind for me. But it helps that I'm a bread addict.

          Go to Alex Cheese (St. Lawrence Market, Danforth, Yonge and Eglinton, Manulife Centre). Pick up two or three raw-milk cheeses and a couple of fresh baguettes. Yum!
