Stress-Free Ways to Serve Individual Portions When Entertaining a Group
If you're hosting a big group of people, chances are you're whipping up crowd-pleasing dishes like garlic Parmesan chicken wings or chicken spaghetti casserole, and serving them alongside some delicious batch cocktails. However, there's no rule that says you need to serve dishes to your guests that are only suitable for a sizable bunch. In fact, sometimes you want to make your guests feel extra special by treating them to individual portions or individually wrapped foods—be it at an intimate celebration or a cozy backyard gathering. Plus, serving food to each guest may cut down on the transfer of germs, which is especially useful during the dreaded cold and flu season.
That said, individually plating and serving meals for multiple guests is no easy feat, especially if there is more than one course involved. To help you navigate the art of serving individual portions without losing your sanity, we've compiled a list of tips and pointers to keep in mind for your next elevated dinner party.
