Not what I ever expected for $16.99. A teeny tiny paperback book with very few recipes. Almost insulting - a recipe for honey glazed carrots for 50? That's not rocket science. Was looking forward to something much more in depth. Returned it the day I got it. Nothing even worthy of copying before the return.
I had high hopes for this book when I ordered it. Unfortunately, the recipes are too simple and not very tasty. Of course, I haven't cooked every single one; it's just that after a few at random turning out bland and unfortunately a waste of time and ingredients I gave up on this one. You're better off paying more and getting something from the Culinary Institute than dropping coin on this.
I was hoping for some ideas for feeding folks at my husbands Elks Lodge. Was not worth the money at all.
This book has a great idea but doesn't carry it through. It starts with several themes for each season and I thought that it would then create menus and recipes for each one. However, it does not. There are really few recipe strictly for large groups and many of them just take a recipe for 6-8 and then multiply the measurements for a larger group. I am capable of doing that on my own. I was looking for menu suggestions for the various themes as well as suggestions for a church pot luck, or feeding the residents at an assisted living facility etc. If the author had followed through with her themes, I think this book would have been greatly improved.
I love this book! we have a huge family, and are always inviting over friends to have even bigger group get togethers..and these recipes are quick, easy, delicious...and DIFFERENT! I love the variety. And the ideas for kids and teens too!
At first I thought it was just another recipe book. To my surprise I found much much more. It has ideas and portion charts and shopping list and guides and planning tips, pretty much everything you need to plan and cook for a large group of people. I really like how it's designed and it's printed on a high quality paper so it won't fall apart easily. All recipes are very simple, majority are literally something you can "throw together" as you are getting ready for the day. Most are very few ingredients. I have tried a couple of the recipes for a party I had last weekend and I'm absolutely happy with how easy it was to impress my friends.
I needed recipes to feed 100+ people at our Church and this book met my needs. I also liked the pages that tell you how much food to order for the large groups. Many other useful pages and information for feeding 100+ people.
