Entertaining 6 to 8 People – Part 1

Entertaining 6 to 8 people

Entertaining 6 to 8 People – Part 1.

Entertaining 6 to 8 people can be challenging, not to mention that putting together food selection can be stressful as well. Don’t you agree ? This time I will give you some idea of food selection to entertain 6 to 8 adult. It is saver to measure cooking for 8 adult when we invite 6 as we never know for sure our guess appetite . Can be they just back from gym or running, or just like me…naturally eat a lot 😀

When entertaining people, I like to mix all type of food/cooking, it gives a rich taste and experience also choices to our lovely guesses. I love western food as much as Asian food. I love food, period :)

This time, I prepared lunch for 6 adult and 4 beautiful children. So the measurement for cooking would be similar with cooking for 8 adult. When I know that I cook a lot, I would not serve heavy entree, otherwise everyone will be full before the main food serve.

For the main dish I made:
1. Baked potatoes with bacon and thyme
2. Roasted leg of lamb
3. Rosemary chicken and tomatoes
4. Indonesian braised beef
5. Roasted Mushroom Salad

I cooked “Rosemary chicken and tomatoes” and “Indonesian braised beef” the night before as both dishes taste better the next day, thats what I think anyway. And also it makes a lot easier the next day as we only cook few dish.

Here’s the portion I use and the shopping list for above menus, I do hope it helps with your entertaining plan.
