Festival Food Preparation Sheet

All types of communities are kept in mind while finalizing the menu to make sure that every attendee is full and enjoyed their food. The entire menu of the festival including appetizers, main courses, and dessert is pre-decided to let the event go hassle-free.
  • Number of attendees: total number of people attending the festival gives an idea about how much food should be prepared so that everyone can enjoy but it is not too much that you have to deal with great loads of leftovers.

  • Ingredients: all the ingredients of the decided dishes are bought beforehand. It is important to prefer quality while buying ingredients to ensure the best food served at the festival.

This equipment may include blenders, ovens, mortar, serving dishes and spoons, etc.
  • Dietary restrictions: many individuals in communities observe different dietary restrictions which must be kept in mind. These restrictions may include lactose intolerance, vegetarians, halal meat, etc.
