Is there a book to tell you how much food to prepare for a large group of people?
- Anonymous9 years agoFavorite Answer
well i am not sure if this will help you but this is the numbers i use
for example if you are cooking for 100 adults
and they are having 4 hot dishes and 1 salad
you will have to make 16 full size buffet trays (4 of each different food item)
and 2 full size trays of salad
this will be enough
if you need more info email me and i will help as much as i could
i have worked in restaurants all my life ..

Yes, there are recipe/cookbooks for professional cooks/commercial kitchens. An example would be one that I have from the Culinary Institute of America. Also, you might want to call a caterer and see if they'll help you calculate what you need for how many people. You might need to pay them for a bit of their time...but it would be worth it. They are professionals that are used to buying, preparing, cooking & serving for larger groups of people.
