Hi Ellen, very informative site, worthy of a donation.

I have previous catering experience, however, been out of the business for a while and a little rusty. Offering feedback to friends on quantities for a family style dinner, July wedding reception at 5pm, mixed ages with 350 invited. Expect most to attend.

Raw boneless beef - 150 lbs
whole turkey - 10 ~ 18 lb birds
mashed- oz serving
frozen mixed vegy- oz serving

horseradish and cranberry

coleslaw - your 100 person 3.5 times
ceaser - your 100 person 3.5 times (6lb bacon bits?)
dinner buns buttered

Big event, I remember the work involved. Your input welcome.

Have you ever compiled the core info of this site into a book for purchase?

Mike

Family style uses a little less than buffet.

Raw boneless beef - 150 lbs- 1 pound per 3- 120 boneless
whole turkey - 10 ~ 18 lb birds-1 pound per 3- 120 whole- 16 and under have better quality white meat
mashed- 45-50 pounds per 100
gravy- 1/4 cup per person
frozen mixed veggies- 22 pounds ready to cook per 100

horseradish- 1 cup per 10
cranberry - 1 pound per 6, half whole, half jelly

the donation link provides for US addresses only. Does the site have a Canadian option?

As much as I would like to be in Texas enjoying BBQ beef ribs, I live in Canada :)
