“It’s a meal that is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of job title; when coworkers can break the proverbial (or sometimes actual) bread; when cooks can break free from the constraints of making menu dishes and throw together something of their choosing. A cook at a high-end Italian restaurant might be moved to make pad thai, or a chef at a French Moroccan restaurant might have an opportunity to use a scrap rack of ribs to prepare a BBQ-inspired spread; sometimes a kitchen team might come together to create a cookout-themed meal, with each member responsible for one aspect, giving it a potluck feel.”
