Good-time food; simple, original and fun sharing dishes to eat with the people you love

What is life, without delicious food and the people you love to share it with? 

For our edit of ultimate sharing dishes, we take a dip into the national cuisine of Spain, Brazil, Switzerland, Japan and more.

We've picked out easy-to-assemble dishes that pack a culinary punch and feed many hungry mouths at short notice.

The snacks and treats we've chosen are as fun to make as they are to eat, for a collective and interactive experience that doesn't involve one person slaving away resentfully in the kitchen alone. Picture instead a happy, relaxed group of people passing round ingredients and mucking in together to make the meal come alive. 

So whether you're hosting a low-key dinner party for friends or have a crowd to feed on the cheap, come revel in these good-time group dishes that are all about the sharing, from seafood paella to raclette, fondue and Hawaiian-style fajitas:
