In the first of a two-part series, Madhu Menon talks about quantity, planning and the kind of food to make for a house party
Everyone loves a good house party. Everyone, except the poor person who has to plan it all out, of course. I am regularly asked how much food and drink to get for parties, what should be made, what should be bought from outside. It happens so often that I figured the easiest way is to just write a column on it and then angrily tell friends: “Haven’t you read my column in Indulge on it yet? What is wrong with you?"
