A Hot Pot is a co-creative experience in which a dish is cooked collectively by all guests joining in. Sitting together around a large table, everybody adds a selection of ingredients to a simmering boil of soup. The meal gets tastier with every additional input, and in the end, all guests can enjoy a spicy, delicious treat.
