Cooking for a large party takes some preparation, organization, and help. Let apps help you organize your menu and shopping list as well as give you ideas for recipes that will be delicious and easy to deliver.
When cooking for a crowd of 20 or more, you need to begin with the basics. How many people are coming, how many dishes are you serving, and what type of dinner is it? Once you've answered those questions, you can begin to brainstorm recipes and ideas so you can create your list of ingredients. Apps can help you plan meals for large groups. For example, you can get recipes that are easy to make for large groups on apps like Pinterest or BigOven. Whether you think buffet style or seated dinner is appropriate, apps can give you ideas and inspiration so you can be creative when making your menu. Let's say you have complied some good recipes but the recipe was only for 6-8 people. You can use great apps like CookBook that offer a recipe manager feature that will tell you what the serving sizes for large groups should be. This recipe manager feature can also offer a catering cheat sheet that will help you list out all the ingredients you will need to make your shopping experience easier.
Even though you now have the resources to gather recipes and organize your shopping list, you might still be on the fence about what you want to make. Apps can give you great party food ideas and even help you brainstorm what kind of dinner you would like to make. For example, what should you do if you are planning lunch for a group? You should look at an app like Tasty where you can filter to buffet ideas. You can find ideas like build your own burrito bar or a cold buffet full of fresh seafood and salads. Keep in mind, you want to find recipes that everyone will enjoy but also give you time to relax and have fun with friends. Just because you are the chef, it doesn't mean you have to slave in the kitchen and not enjoy the dinner. Since you have done the work, you deserve to eat delicious food too.
