1 Wedding Reception for 300 (2 p.m.) on Tue Jul 28, 2009 2:42 pm

This is the menu: Caesar salad; pasta salad; meat and cheese tray; turkey, cream cheese, cranberry sauce, pumpkin seeds and lettuce roll-ups; fruit tray; mac and cheese cupcakes; pita and hummus. How much do I need to purchase?

There are many factors that influence the portioning – time of day, plate size, how long service is, etc., but I would estimate the food in the following way:

7-10 portions salad per head of romaine – cut one, portion it out then multiply
30 portions per litre of dressing
6-10 portions pasta salad per litre
40g total meat and cheese per person
50g cooked turkey per guest
10l cranberry sauce
1 lettuce rollup and 1 cupcake per person – depending upon the size
5 large platters of sliced fruits and berries
20l of hummus

If you are in doubt, put together a small version of this menu, plate it, and it will be easier to visualize and adjustments can be made accordingly.
