If you are planning a large event like a wedding or a party, then it is important to how much food to order. You need to determine how many people will be attending the event. You also need to know the type of food that you are ordering. For instance, pasta can feed a lot more people then steak. It is important to always have a little extra on hand for unexpected guests or even the workers. Once you have a good head count you can determine a portion size and multiply that by the amount of people coming to get the amount of food you need for your event.
