It would depend on how you are preparing these different foods and whether you are filling the plates for them or letting them take their own. If you dish up the plates it is easier to control the portions. If you go to this page on our site, http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--1084/how-much-to-buy.asp#meat, it will provide you with information on how to determine the amount of the different meats. It will also make a difference in whether everyone is served all three meats or if they have a choice of one. As for the potatoes, a good rule to follow is 1 medium potato per person. If you go to this chart on our site, http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--654/ingredients-n-to-r.asp, you will see potatoes listed and it gives you several potato equivalents that may be useful in determining the amount of potatoes needed. As for the pumpkin, I am not sure how you are planning on serving that so I am not sure what to tell you on that. Will it be prepared as a vegetable? In researching hangi cooking, it sounds like a very interesting method for cooking foods that provides some delicious foods. I am not familiar with this cooking process but I hope the information I have provided for the meats and potatoes will still be helpful. Good luck.
Can you add a time frame on cooking time please.
anyone have guidance on what sixe? I'd guess more the better

I make a "vegetarian" kale soup that has beans, diced tomatoes, onions, carrots, kale and water. I prefer to use a lot of kale but because I have been putting it on top, it doesn't "sink" so I can't use as much as I would like.
