Q: A group of my friends enjoy the bread dipping spice mix at a particular restaurant. Last month, we dug up the recipe and decided to get together to make a big batch, sending everyone home with a jar of the mix. We had a great time, chopping, mixing, and chatting.
We want to do it again this month and are looking for a recipe project to tackle. Nothing too complicated, since the wine and the chatting are equally as important as the cooking, and something that can easily be shared to take home. Any suggestions?

Editor: Sounds fun! My mind immediately jumped to dumplings and steamed buns, which require many hands and are easy to divide among a group of people. Tamales would be another great idea for a group cooking effort.
• Kenny Lao's Rickshaw Dumplings
• Vegetarian Steamed Buns
• Host a Tamale Party
Readers, any other ideas for group cooking projects?
