I'm hosting my grandmother's 85th birthday this month and will be cooking for 12 family members. As it's a milestone, I'm trying to make the meal special.
I don't have a large kitchen, so my normal go to for large groups is Boeuf Bourguignon, however I served that to the family just last winter. Roasting chickens came to mind, but I could probably only fit 2 large or 3 small in the oven which wouldn't be enough.
If it helps, I'll be serving a kale/walnut salad, a tomato/tarragon salad, ricotta with bread, and potentially root vegetable mash to go with whatever main I settle on. Thoughts?
