A Gritogether is a casual collaborative experience for people to gather and enjoy both nourishing food and healthy conversation. Think old school potluck, but cooler and more delicious. It’s a fun, simple and affordable way to host a crowd.
Here’s the deets
Gruff grits are the base of the meal, and the options are limitless. Theme your gathering and make it potluck style or summon your inner chef and create a unique artisan entree. Prep can be as simple or as fancy as you want to make it. As the host you decide whether to provide all the food or to make it truly collaborative and invite your guests to bring designated toppings.
