Moveable Feasts

In a matter of an hour’s time today, I read about the idea of progressive dinners on the site of a caterer and heard the idea mentioned on a television talk show. Popular in the 50’s, this idea of moving to a different home for each course seems to be making a comeback.

The progressive dinner sounds like a great entertaining solution for hysterical hostesses and for everyone at this busy time of year. Just keep the food simple. For example, make a batch cocktail rather than offering an open bar or prepare a braised dish, which can be served at room temperature or be rewarmed when it’s your turn.
