|Hello. I am cooking for my daughter's party. We are expecting about 300 people. The menu will be green cheese enchiladas, red Chile con Carne, brisket, beans, rice, potatoe salad, and pasta salad. My question is how much of everything do I need to buy?|
Cooking for 300 people
The challenge with the brisket is most everyone will want some, even if they eat all the other good things. Everything else will be seen as side dishes! Do please have someone serve the first round so you don't run out too soon!
Also, this menu calls out for green salad, see the plan for 100 page for help on amounts.
green cheese enchiladas, 5 per each 3 guests
brisket, 1 pound raw per 3 is someone serves it
beans, 8 pounds dry per 100, or 3 gallons cooked
You are looking at 4 refrigerators to safely store this much food. Plan ahead.
Appetizers? One appetizer service area serves about 100 guests. If you have rotating guests, you would do 2.
Hope this helps. Now I need to ask for your help in return!
