3 Fail-Safe Potluck Recipes from Celebrity Chefs

It’s no surprise that I love a potluck—I am a food editor, after all. Potlucks mean the chance to get to try tons of different dishes. But there are always a couple that I wish I hadn’t tried. So what if I could orchestrate a dream potluck with a guest list of great chefs? Each chef would bring a dish. The spread would be fantastic! I can’t bring a bunch of chefs over to your house for dinner, but I can help make this fantasy a reality. And that’s just what I did for the May/June issue of EatingWell Magazine: a virtual celebrity-chef potluck, with a great take-along party recipe from each chef.

Don’t Miss: Get amazingly delicious potluck recipes from all 7 celebrity chefs, including bite-size nut-crusted cheese balls from Paula Deen's sons Jamie and Bobby Deen.

Here are three of my favorite recipes from the story. Make one of these recipes from Mario Batali, Tyler Florence or Bobby Flay and your dish is sure to be a standout on any potluck spread!
