Whether you're a novice in the kitchen or a seasoned home chef, hosting a cooking party is easy. Since everyone helps with the preparations, enthusiasm and a love of culinary adventure are more important than experience. All you’ll need are some recipes that are fun to prepare with a group, plus a few make-ahead dishes to round out the meal.
Our five-spice pork wraps, which call for plenty of congenial chopping, slicing and stirring, are perfect for a cooking party. Organize your kitchen equipment and prep space so everyone has the right tools and ample room to work. If you don't have enough knives or other tools, encourage guests to bring their own favorites. Pour everyone a ginger cocktail or a glass of wine and let the cooking begin!
