I grew up in a small village in the 70s and I remember, it was always celebrated somewhere. In the famous party cellars, which felt at every home and everywhere else. There were also garage festivals, neighborhood festivals and street parties. The people got together, celebrated hilariously and we children always in the middle.
During this time, the many party pot recipes have been created with the task to host and pamper many dear people in a simple way. Honestly, these dishes exert a great fascination on me, because just when you expect many guests is always the question in the room what you should cook without spending hours in the kitchen. Time is a scarce commodity for us all.
THE PARTY POUND STOP WAS ALREADY BORN IN THE 70’S
The party pound pot for twelve fell into my hands with my stepmom as I studied her recipe book again. She often prepared it in the 70s, as she says, but even today when many guests come. Funny, it’s called pound pot, because the ingredients are added almost exclusively in 500g units. You can remember that well .
It is always celebrated, a simple party dinner for 12 people has to come!
In the 70s, it was also like to use instant sauces from the bottle as a flavor carrier, as well as in the pound pot. Fortunately, the instant sauces do not contain any flavor enhancers, preservatives, or artificial colors. I’ve decided on chilli sauce and shashlik sauce, but you can also take hunter’s sauce or Mexican sauce, for example. There are countless varieties of ready-made sauces in the trade. Whatever you would like for a flavor in the party pound pot for twelve, just get in with it .
EASY PARTY TO BE UNCOMPLICATED
What else speaks for the party pound pot, you can cook it already the day before. Just the next day before the guests come warm up slowly and thus have even less stress. So must be a simple party dinner for 12 people . By the way, the party pound pot is great with side dishes such as rice or pasta. But also farmhouse baguette, crust bread or country bread are an uncomplicated way to make many guests happy.
