Thanks, how many people does that stretch to?

a proper crown roast is made from 2 full racks tied together, anywhere from 8 to 12 ribs per rack.

so, if you expect some of your guests will want two chops, you'll need a crown roast on the bigger end of the scale.

Crown Roast of Pork, How To Make and Cook Crown Loin of Pork, Crown Roast Recipe, Pork Crown Roast, Pork Recipes, Roasted Crown Loin of Pork Recipe

i noticed they mentioned a crown roast will serve 8 to 10 people, so you may need to make 2.

If you were looking for something more simple, a couple of spiral sliced hams would work.

A full crown roast with two racks is a lot of food! That's 16-24 chops. I'd guess that's just right for 15 diners. Not every diner will want two. I assume there will be lots of sides and desserts to look forward to.

A steamship round will feed all your guests with 1 pc of meat with leftovers.You could carve at the table and serve with a horseradish cream and yorkshire puds.

Green beans with bacon

Scalloped potatoes

A big trifle for dessert or port and cheeses with figs.
