Like most office pot-luck parties; there are certain challenges that need to be met and overcome to guarantee a successful contribution. For example, how many outlets are available in the company break room? This is important for crock pot contributions – you need electricity to keep the pot warm. Is there ample refrigerator space? If your choice involves a dish that requires refrigeration until serving time, that’s important. Does your dish require reheating or warming? If so, is there a microwave, and can it handle a large platter or only a small bowl? Some foods are best served hot, others cold and others still at room temperature.
