Whether it’s a wedding, birthday party, celebration, holiday or celebration, the food almost always makes the event even better. Here are few steps you can take to make cooking for large groups of your friends and family easier.
First you need to plan everything out. Plan out every single dish and while you have the recipes, make sure that you write down all the ingredients you’ll need and the amounts. For large parties, a great way to save money is to serve finger food as well as dishes. The kind of finger food that you can make it up to you, but spinach and cheese in filo dough, creative cheese or hummus dips with vegetable trays, meat and vegetable skewers and your favorite potato salad and other side dishes are perfect. Depending on the weather an nature of your event will also depend on what kind of food you serve. Warmer meals and side dishes go well in colder months and barbecues are perfect for the Summer time.
If you’re going to be cooking for a long time since you will be cooking for a large groups of people, it is important that you’re comfortable while you’re cooking. If there will be guests at your home or wherever the event takes place make sure that you are wearing an apron so that you don’t get dirty. However, if you’re cooking before anyone shows up to your event, grab a pair of sweats and get started. Since you’ll more than likely be on your feet for the majority of time that the food is cooking, you should make sure you’re wearing comfortable footwear. Grab a pair of Uggs, which work for both formal and casual wear. This will ensure that you’re feet are comfortable while you’re working and you get tired less easily. If you already have the perfect shoes for your event, just brings them along and change into your shoes when you’re finished cooking.
