How would you figure out how much food to have?
Both in variety and amount
Easiest way to figure is by weight.
Assuming you have two meat, one vegetable, and two starches:
5-6 oz. of each meat dish per person.
2-3 oz. of vegetable per person.
2-3 oz. of each starch per person.
This is only for the main courses. With appetizers, you can probably go by the piece instead of weight, depending on what you're serving. If you let me know how much people are coming, and exactly what you're serving, I can give you more info
