Be Safety Conscious

It is very important when feeding a large crowd to put into consideration some safety measures pertaining to cooking and food. You wouldn’t want to poison your guests. When cooking batches of food, it is important that they are washed and cooked thoroughly.

An instant-read thermometer can be used to be sure. Once they’re cooked, the hot foods must be prepared at a temperature that does not allow bacteria to grow, particularly for poultry recipes. If you;re moving your food from one place to another, you must keep your hot foods hot and your cold foods cold till you get to your destination.

Quantity of Recipes

Family dining

Some recipes can be doubled when cooking, but not necessary all. For instance, the fat needed for sauteing doesnot need to be doubled as long as you have enough of it to fill the bottom of the pan

Also, some meals take less than double time and some may take more, all depending on the amount of the dish. Cooking times may not need to be multiplied just like the reason behind the recipe ingredients. Multiplyiing by an odd number is not advised aas it does not usually turn out as well. Division is however better for recipes to cook for a crowd.
