I am new, and was wondering whether someone can help me. I am helping a friend with her husbands 40th party tomorrow !!!! ( I know), and they want roast potato's. I have the chafing dishes to keep the potato's hot while on the buffet table, but I am unsure of how to prepare them without having a last minute dash - or without them going funny. I was thinking of par boiling them, then roasting them, and leaving them to cool and to re- heat them later before the buffet - is that a safe option, or would I be best to par boil them, and leave them in a oven for a couple of hours to cook - and then bring them out before going to the party, and putting them in the chafing dishes ready to be served!!! any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks in advance - Vx
