Every Easter I cook for 50 or so people at a Work Party for a christian charities outward bound camp (http://www.greatwood.org.uk/). I’m getting a bit bored of doing the same old recipes and I’m looking for alternative ideas. Everyone is working outside and doing pretty physical work, they need filling meals. We are on a pretty tight budget and time is also an issue so we need meals that don’t take too much work. We make our own quiche and pizza from scratch and are all experienced cooks, but we need some time off to take care children and rest (2 of the kitchen staff have battled mild ME for a long time).
We do 3 meals a day, lunch normally being hot as well a full hot dinner in the evening. I also need pudding ideas.
Thus far I have
Beef in Beer
Pasta and pesto with salad
Puddings I really struggle with. Crumbles and pies are great but I like to have a bit of variety.
Any ideas would be great. I’m trying to do a few more veggie meals, so sneaking some of those in would be great!
