How to cook rice for 20-30 people?

loraxc | Aug 7, 2011 09:03 AM

I am making beans and rice as part of the menu for a party. How do I make rice for this many? I usually cook rice on the stove (no rice cooker)--can I multiply amounts and have it turn out okay? Also, thoughts on keeping it warm? Maybe I shouldn't bother--this is a casual party from 5-8 and people will arrive at different times....

I have this ISSUE with rice, as well...I tend to mess it up. I am a really experienced cook, so I don't know why rice is an enemy of mine, but it is. I like to blame my electric stove as well as the fact that I usually buy whatever rice is cheapest in the bulk bins at the natural food store. I do find I have better luck if I buy bagged rice.
