Some important tips:
although the term “potluck” suggests a random assortment of dishes, the idea is to focus on Belgian (style) food
bring your dish ready-to-eat in a to-go container; we are in a Club House with no kitchen
bring a serving dish and serving utensils; again: we are in a Club House …
label your dish(es) if they cannot be traced back to you
all those who are gluten intolerant, food allergenic, vegans or have any kind dietary challenge(s) are requested to bring their own food to avoid any mishaps.
Party guests are expected to help with the clean up …
