An interactive dinner party where the guests cook?

I had this once before after I watched Michael Chiarello. He made mozzarella then ate it with different topping, everyone got involved I have had many parties ... make your own pizza, stuffed burger parties are a lot of fun. Panini or sandwich parties, also some where I get people involved in making deserts, also stuffed breads, baquettes and I am looking for other ideas. I do the lobster pot where everyone get involved picking out their own seafood.

Any suggestions?

      Like, done that once, but thank you for reminding me. It is alot of fun We even wrote name on the skewers and colored the tops put people took each others, lol. Too bad for them, :)

    2. Raclette parties can be fun.

      1. I invited handful of friends over last year and we made scones, finger sandwiches and had ourselves a proper tea!

        1. I've never done this, but I know people who have had sushi-making parties.

            I thought of that. I have made sushi, takes a bit of precision slicing and a bit of patience, but it was fun. My biggest problem is there sometimes may be 10 or maybe 30 guests. But love all the ideas

          2. What about stuff-your-own ravioli or samosa party?

              Fun, I love making ravioli and with wontons or even pre made ravioli strips it takes alot of stress away.

              It can be alot of fun and cooking time is very quick. Nice idea.

                We made ravioli at one of our dinner club meetings. Three types of fillings and three types of sauces and then we all sat down and ate. Good eats, good fun, good company.
