How many lbs. of mussels per person?
So my bachelor uncle has me cook a multi-course dinner party every time I go visit. I'm cool with that, since I love cooking and setting tables. Now, his guests tend to be higher end professionals, and they are major foodies. These people dine at michelin star restaurants and only drink fine wines. They're a little intimidating to cook for. Heh. The party is next week.
Can I have your opinion of this menu? AND, since the main is moules frites, how many pounds of mussles should I get to feed eight people? 1.5 lbs per person?
