When you plan to serve a meal for 60, your best bet is to figure in a little extra food to make sure you do not run out of food.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Use the number 70 instead of 60 when calculating food amounts to give you a cushion for extra servings and leftovers. Guests may over-serve themselves at a buffet. Using the higher number will prevent food shortages.

  2. 2

    Multiply 142gr. by 70 to determine how much pasta salad you need. According to the Great Party Recipes website, you should figure 4 or 5 oz. of pasta salad per person. Multiplying 70 by 5 equals 350. Divide 9923gr. by 16 to get 9.92kg. of pasta salad. Round this up to 9.98kg. if you desire.

  3. 3

    Multiply 113gr. by 70 to determine how much coleslaw you need. According to the Great Party Recipes website, you should figure 3 or 113gr. of coleslaw per person. Multiplying 70 by 4 equals 280. Divide 7938gr. by 16 to get 7.94kg. of coleslaw.
