Gourmet Pot Luck

Host a GOURMET Pot Luck... with a TWIST

  • Do you love throwing dinner parties
  • Tired of cooking for yourself?
  • Passionate about hosting dinner parties but don't want to pressure of doing it all?
  • Love entertaining but don't want to pay for everything. 

Well then, this is for YOU!

How it works:

  • You pick the date and theme
  • Decide how many guests you can accommodate
  • Decide what other dishes you want participants to bring.
  • Decide the beverages you want.
  • Prepare your home for a dinner party
  • Serve the main dish.

We do the rest!

Guests sign up and choose what side dish/course or beverage they want to bring.

Friends with Forks coordinates all the logistics.

The host gets to focus on being a fabulous host and having fun!


  • Pick the type of event you want to do,
  • Pick the date,
  • Decide how many guest you can accommodate.
  • Provide the space and food.
  • We set up the event for you!

Of course not! Your dinner event can be fancy and gourmet or down home and simple. Your choice!

For now, about a 30 minute drive from Portland.

Yes! We take care of posting the dinner event, managing ticket sales, communicating the directions, etc. 

As a host, all you have to do is pick the date, the theme and the number of guests. We do everything else. 

Two weeks minimum is usually best. You also can pick a date several weeks in advance.

Yes. You decide how much everything will cost you and Dinner Mates will fold that into the ticket price so you get reimbursed. 

Anything you want! The sky is the limit! It is YOUR party!

It depends on what kind of an event you want to host. Some events lend themselves to Sunday afternoon (Crepe party) or Friday night. (Wine Tasting Party) but you decide. Weekends usually work best but a week night can work too. 

Yes! We encourage you to do this together!

Absolutely! We are all set up to accept donations and will send them to your chosen 501c3 charity.
