My 40th, quite soon.

Party at home 60-80 guests. Cheesey disco and food.

I am thinking stroganoff and rice. And big veg korma for veggies.

How do i work out what quantity I need to make?

I think from working in a canteen years ago - 2oz of raw rice per person (3 if you think they wll eat lots) 500grams of meat per 5 people when adding vegs etc eg. in chlli or bolognese. would use about double the amount of veg as it breaks down when cooking for the Korma.
