how much to make
Catering a friends wedding, have never prepared food in this large of a quantity...
Menu includes - tossed salad-boneless ham-fried chicken- baked rigatoni - parsley buttered potatoes (or maybe scalloped potatoes)
corn and or green beans.....and rolls......200 people attending really need help with the quantity of each item....
Jamie, a wedding dinner this size takes 3 people in the kitchen, a manager and at least 10-12 people to set up, serve and cleanup.

You need 1 pound boneless ham for each 3 people plus 1 piece of chicken for each person. All the rest of the items are on the plan for 100 page. If you want to post your estimate, I will be glad to check it for you.
