Are you planning a casual party or event?
One of the questions many people struggle with is working out how much food to serve.
Too little and your reputation as the perfect host/hostess is destroyed, too much and it's a waste...right?
This guide will answer those questions about catering quantities to make certain that your guests will not have to do a Macca's run on their way home from your party or event.
Pre-Dinner Nibbles - You will need 3-5 pieces
Cocktail Party - Allow 4-6 pieces per hour per person - where the finger food is served in place of a meal. Keep in mind that you will serve more pieces per hour in the 1st 2 hours and far less per hour after that.
Remember snacks with meat and fried foods are more filling.
Remember the longer the party and the larger your guest list, the more finger food options you should offer
2 mini dessert options / Cream Puffs / Mini Eclairs / Petite Cake
150 grams of ice cream or similar
If serving two of the above options then reduce by half
