Cooking for a large group is challenging! This 40 page booklet can change all of that. Produced by the makers of Accent, this undated book is a wealth of information for taking on large group cooking. Most of the recipes in the book are proportioned to serve 50. The book begins with some organizational tips and delineation of tasks. After the rules are set out, the book is divided into six different large group gatherings complete with menus for that scenario, and then the individual recipes to make that meal and a market order (shopping list) to take to the grocery to be sure that you have everything you need in the right quantities! How easy is that??
The scenarios are:
Ladies luncheon (or Friday menu)
Young People’s Supper
Father-Son Banquet (or Thanksgiving dinner)
Fiesta Lunch or Dinner
The Father-Son Banquet is a turkey dinner with all of the trimmings. The Ladies Luncheon is meatless with a tuna casserole so it can be used during Lent. All of the recipes are easy and the menus use basic foods dressed up with sauces and simple additions to make them pop!. The unique part of this book is how it takes all of the guess work out of large group cooking.
